For more than twenty years, painter Julia Fish has integrated the formal aspects of her physical surroundings with the precepts of Minimalist painting. Emergent patterns directly referencing floor tiles, siding, stair profiles, and architectural footprints form the basis of Fish’s abstract compositions. For this exhibition, she will install a selection of studies and drawings she created between 1996 and 2010.
Fish’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Martin-Gropius Bau, Berlinische Galerie, Berlin; and The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago. Her work is currently on display in the 2010Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art. She is Professor of Studio Arts in the School of Art and Design at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
