M. Fleischer’s intriguing large scale work of art challenges what we commonly consider “painting.” The work itself is a sheet of paper, creased to create a richly textured surface. The chaotic, clustered, peaks resemble a birds-eye view of a mountain range. Paper with dimension… one could argue that this is a form of relief sculpture. Reds, indigo, teal, blue, violet, white, and even hints of yellow explode from this dynamic surface. Fleischer has captured a magnificent geological or astronomical event. Are we witnessing the birth of new terrain emanating from the Earth’s crust? Maybe Fleischer is emulating the brilliant dance of color found in a celestial nebula. It’s easy for one to become entranced by the large scale, nearly 4ft square, painting. The viewer is literally drawn into the image… there is a deep-set well matte. The original owner spared no expense when framing this piece. The artwork is housed in a silver colored metal frame that’s over 2.5″ thick. A deep, teal, suede-like matte provides an elegant compliment to the work. The piece is protected by a pane of acrylic. The painting is signed “M. Fleischer, 1987.”
