Music Of The Spheres series

Castles, Music Of The Spheres, acrylic and oil on canvas, 21.5" x 13.5", crystalfischetti.com 

Influenced by astronomy, ancient language, computer language and color theory Fischetti continues to create her current studio project titled: Music Of The Spheres. These series of works are presented in pixelated glyphs playfully conversing in varying color mediums on canvas and paper. Her narrative is based on space exploration and her returned inquiry into parallel universes. Fischetti reflects on our current interaction with technology where, for many of us, the majority of our human interaction lies within anthropomorphised avatars of ourselves. Life on Earth is becoming a distant past. Our future is a new reality, experienced in massive metaverses, MMORPGs and surreal platforms through circuit boards, interconnected devices and multinational networks to a familiar space that parallels our existing universe. This new environment can be an utopia for humankind where our undiscovered friendly creatures live with us in harmony. “Sacred number” is the language that these beings communicate under a golden space within their balanced ratio. Fischetti paints under the schools of Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism and Color Theory. Her base coats are soak-stained which is a technique inspired by Helen Frankenthaler. Like her heroine, Fischetti finds this process deeply intimate as the water or oil based mediums instantly connects her and the canvas she works on. The same experience is applied in her collages. For her, the action of cutting and ripping paper are fond and meditative gestures; remnants of a tactile world. Her color blocks have a Paul Klee familiarity. Like Wassily Kandinsky, she has developed a synthesia where she can hear the notes of the colors she paints. Though influenced by these old masters, Fischetti is clearly 21st Century - propelling new thoughts in abstraction.
