A substantial clothbound appraisal of 60 years of abstraction by Louise Fishman

“If good painting is what you want to do, then good painting is what you must look at,” New York–based painter Louise Fishman (born 1939) wrote in a 1977 issue of Heresies. “Take what you want and leave the dreck.” Fishman is renowned for her subtractive method of mark-making, which celebrates process and rejects the masculinist impulses of abstract expressionism. She uses scrapers, trowels and traditional brushes to apply and remove dense layers of paint in loose, gestural scores across the canvas. Fishman’s training as a sculptor is visible in the physicality of her paint, which is vigorously applied, indexing her movement about the canvas.

This comprehensive clothbound monograph spans the evolution of Fishman’s practice over the last 60 years of the artist’s extensive oeuvre. The fully illustrated volume includes two newly commissioned essays by Debra Singer and Josephine Halvorson, with republished essays by Aruna D’Souza, Andrew Suggs, Suzan Frecon, Bertha Harris and John Yau.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Bookforum

Fran Bigman

Fishman’s paintings turn energetic, intuitive applications of mineral-colored paint—using brushes, spades, brooms, or her fingers—into gridded, modular forms, creating a combination of density and airiness, of negative space and built-up paint chipped away to expose underlying layers.
