Nina Johnson gallery hosts a luncheon on Saturday for New York-based artist, designer and architect R.M. Fischer in honor of his first solo exhibit in Miami. He returns to his well-received, Eighties-era light sculptures for “Lampworks,” which is on view through October 14. A marriage of art and design, mixed-media lamps feature wrapped, bolted, stretched and sewn vinyl and fabric skins. Their colorful, industrial jumbles resemble Meccano construction sets or shaman creatures for an effect that’s both playful and menacing. The exhibit isn’t his only tie to Miami. He was commissioned for a flight tower at Miami International Airport, which was thwarted by 9/11, and his work is part of the Rubell Family Collection. Other major institutions including the Whitney, Dallas Museum and Broad Foundation also collect his work.
