Alex Fischer hails from Hanover, Ontario, but currently lives and works in Toronto.
I often unintentionally support Toronto artists, but what can I say? My hometown is pretty cool.
Fischer’s work is most intriguing for me because, while the images are digital, it still possesses painterly evocations. Also, there is something mystical about his settings that seem to relate to the idea of the computer as an important contemporary immaterial setting. YEAH?
