Project Description

Beverly Fishman’s neon-hued geometric works utilize both shaped canvases and eye-popping forms within the picture plane, employing a variety of materials and techniques to explore technological, scientific, and biological systems of perception and representation. She frequently uses mediums like chrome and urethane automotive paint that speak in conversation with the legacy of the Detroit area, where she has lived and worked as Head of the Painting Department of the Cranbrook Academy of Art since 1992.

Fishman has exhibited in cities around the world, and her works are in the collections of the Cranbrook Art Museum, the MacArthur Foundation Collection, the Pérez Art Museum Miami, the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
