The work of artist Berta Fischer is vibrantly otherworldly. The sculptures look like substances found on another planet, or perhaps the stage of pop star Lady Gaga. Although abstract and organic, there is an industrial element to Berta Fischer's work that owes itself entirely to the materials used to create them. Focusing on synthetic materials such as PCV and acrylic glass, the sculptures strike up a "dialogue between the natural and the artificial," as noted by Beautiful Decay.

Living and working in Berlin, Germany, Berta Fischer creates transparent pieces that lighten up the space they are placed in almost immediately. Yet this airy and delicate quality still has a sense of tension to it that invites the audience to delve deeper. With a little bit of imagination, they appear to move.
