Judit Fischer graduated in painting from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts and completed her doctoral studies at the University of Fine Arts in 2018. In her medially diverse conceptual practice she deals with the issue of representation. For the representation of typically everyday, negligible objects, she primarily chooses the mediums of drawing, watercolour, and weaving. Often depicting artistic props, everyday objects, and products of mass consumption that are discarded after a short period of use, her scale-identical ‘still lifes’ can be seen as ironic takes on academic art, both in subject and technique.

In recent years, Fischer’s watercolours in varying sizes have become a characteristic format, capturing objects in the artist’s environment. The choice of objects themselves is idiosyncratic, unexpected, and humorous, and how they are executed is highly realistic, precise, and narratively sensitive. Through the paintings, motifs from the artist’s personal life are also expressed, since, as she became a mother, her watercolours also include objects (small toys, doll biscuits) related to parenthood. In addition to drawings and watercolours, she also enjoys working with a variety of craft techniques such as paper weaving and tapestry, which is how she came to creating latch-hook rugs, the result of which is a tapestry depicting large-scale painting palettes. In her collaborative creative practice, she also draws attention to the everyday intersections between life and art in the form of actions.
