CRYSTAL FISCHETTI

Fischetti is a London based artist who is inspired by light, speed and space. Her interest in literature, culture, physics and philosophy are evident in her work and she invites the audience to enter worlds of colour which shape, move and distort our perception of reality. Fischetti works on canvas, paper and digital mediums. Private collections include: London, New York, Los Angeles, Milan, Rome, Geneva and Shanghai. Three of her works are at the YueHu Museum, Shanghai.

The ‘Sun & Moon’ chess set: “The concept for this chess is courtship, love and seduction. Each move the players make is an act of seduction. It is intelligent, calculated, elegant, slightly fearful, heated, cool and overpoweringly sexy. The masculine energy of the Sun is represented in the gold and yellow hues on one side of the chess pieces. The feminine energy of the Moon is represented in the silver and blue hues. The meeting of the opposing pieces symbolises their sensual dance and spiritual union. As it is an interactive art piece. The physical appearance at the end of the game describes the eclipse in abstract form. It is different each time for every player.”
