Richard Fischer is the Preserver of Genesis
Dr. Thomas Holzmann
Former Vice President of the German Enviroment Agency
Exotic plants have influenced the artist's life since childhood. Blessed with the fate of growing up in the Paradise Islands, the tropical Philippines in the 1950s, Fischer grew up in a playground surrounded by beautiful flowers, fragrant orchids and other plants.
This enormous source of inspiration was one of the most important drivers for the empathetic artist and taught him to understand the extraordinary importance of a balanced biodiversity from an early age on.
Plants hold medical, agricultural, ecological, recreational and aesthetic value and plant species are the foundation of healthy ecosystems upon which humanity builds and depends on. Biological diversity is an invaluable and irreplaceable resource and determines quality of life and that of future generations, which strongly depends on responsible preservation of plant species.
Many admirers of flowers see in each specimen a unique beauty and derive from it aesthetic and emotional pleasure. But flowers are also expressions of survival in this fragile world. Plants exist to reproduce, to feed upon, to make their lives and those of others possible. This metamorphosis is exactly the moment Fischer wants to capture and to celebrate, bringing it down to earth and inviting his audience to reflect on this mystical moment.
