Richard Fischer is renown for his exhibition concept A TRIBUTE TO FLOWERS, with many exhibitions, i.e. at the United Nations Europe (UNOG) and in close collaboration with Chinas renowned Academy of Arts, Hangzhou, shown at the Ningbo Museum of Art. Fischer has embarked on another global project emphasizing his statement in creating awareness for our dilapidating environment, specifically tolling the immens loss of our floral world. More than 1,000,000 species are bound for extinction in the next decade, if we do not change our attitude nor offer quick solutions. Creating awareness in this issue is precondition to any global change and therefore Richards main focus. Exceptional personalities are confronted with a flower out of Fischers archives to demonstrate duality between man and nature. Each prominent person suggests their very personal statement to flowers coinciding with the importance of our botanical worlds and the catastrophic conditions we are heading for.
