Melanie Fisher's sculptures are organic and otherworldly. With influences from nature and sci-fi, she builds large forms that are new hybrids of species, with mixed characteristics from the plant and animal kingdom. By working in a range of scales and mediums, Melanie explores the connections between our micro and macro worlds, imagining the opportunity to discover something previously unknown.
Melanie is a resident artist at Buffalo Arts Studio. In August 2018, she attended Red Gate Residency, a program in Beijing, China. After the residency in October, Melanie was selected as an artist to participate in Play/Ground, an immersive art experience meant to engage your senses, expand your mind, and inspire your imagination.
Currently, Melanie is making work for an upcoming installation at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. The exhibit will take place July - August 2019.
