New Facade Series with Sarah Stanley

Roland Fischer's New Facade Series with Sarah Stanley

“Roland Fischer travels to the world’s largest cities in order to compile a virtual catalog of high rise structures.  The artist is in fact investigating the consolidation of financial industries through new forms of trading instruments, especially in Asia, which gave rise to panoply of generic architectural styles in 1980s and 90s.  This contemporary condition which further unites architecture and finance in the newly globalized world city provides the graphic spectrum for Roland Fischer’s Façade series”
