About the Artist: Riley Fichter

In Riley’s words: “Delving headfirst into my dreams and memories, the sculptures I create become a catalyst for my experience. My work tests the malleability of metals and wood, as combating the rigidity of these materials to create organic, abstracted forms is a worthy challenge and thrilling exertion. The sculptures I create take on mixes of figurative and biomorphic shapes that incorporate elements of violence, movement, and tension. I gravitate towards these motifs for their ability to elicit strong physical, mental, and emotional reactions. Spears piercing a body; genitalia formed from steel; strange creatures swaying in the wind: all of these are past solutions for representing my state of being. Displaying my work brings both anxiety and relief, it’s taking a gut punch with a smile. Through gritted teeth and blooded hands, I find validation through production.”
