The impetus is to conceive art as a process - to visualize art in its very nature -
The fabrics Uli Fischer is working with have one thing in common:
they have a history of their own, have obtained a ´soul´ by usage,
bearing signs of wear. Uli Fischer attemps to make these signs of
wear visible, tracking down their individual life and aura, the
patina of each of them, while at the same time exploring their
artistic value and esthetics within a new contextual frame.
In tracing the elements of life within the various fabrics,
Uli Fischer uncovering their apparent patina to unveil their inner
structure and coherence whilst strongly relying on his own artistic
intuition he not only conjures and re-creates the historical aura
but succeeds in expanding it by adding a new dimension: his own.
