R.M Fischer (born 1947 in New York City, NY). He is a sculptor known in the ’80s and ’90s for creating lamps from wholesale kitchen equipment and various fasteners. Currently, Fischer is reinventing his studio practice and leaning more towards work that is wild and funky. Hiss current work is now inspired by abstractions of the face, creating sculptures with disparate textures that are whimsically fused.
