Joana Fischer: Playtime

Baumschaukel - Treeswing

Spielzeit - Playtime II

Spielzeit - Playtime III, 2016, 21 x 21 inches

The imagery of my collage-like drawings reveals intertwined, evocative dream landscapes and questions environmental and existential topics. Delicate fragments are taken out of context and assembled together in something new: Urbanism and nature, inside and outside, specific locations and open areas, near and far, silence and commotion, superposition and exposure, resolution and desire, ease and self-absorption.

In my Playtime series, I present drawings that challenge and call attention to the need of free, unstructured playing time in nature for children. In this fast-paced and highly pressured, often urban and over scheduled world, essential free play for children becomes more and more abolished."
