Este Arte 2024

Rita Fischer

Xippas is pleased to participate in the 2024 edition of Este Arte art fair in Punta del Este with a solo show by Rita Fischer.
On this occasion, the artist will present new paintings created during last year.

Rita Fischer was born in Young (Uruguay) in 1972. Between 2000 and 2012, she lived and worked in Paris and Berlin. She is currently based in Montevideo (Uruguay).
Her work can be associated with a renewed approach to the landscape tradition, although the horizon and perspective, the fundamental and defining elements of the genre, are not present in her paintings.

TIn her paintings, the artist uses the traditional technique of egg tempera on wooden panels. In this technique, pigments are dissolved into egg yolk, which acts as an ideal binder, with balanced fat and water content. Although tempera is associated with the Byzantine world, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, it has, along with encaustic, been used since Antiquity in Egyptian art.

Rita Fischer is the winner of numerous international awards: Second National Prize for Visual Arts Linda Kohen (Uruguay, 2018); FEFCA Scholarship Fund Prize for artistic creation (Uruguay, 2012); Salon de Montrouge Prize (France, 2005); ​​Paul Cézanne Prize (Uruguay, 2000); Mercosur ArteBA First International Prize (Buenos Aires, 2000), among many others.
