For the first time in Germany, Walter Storms Galerie is showing the powerful, visually electrifying works of the American artist Beverly Fishman. With her highly polished “pill reliefs,” the highly renowned artist gives the pharmaceutical industry a whole new visual language in terms of content, creating seemingly abstract compositions in vibrant colors from iconic tablet shapes. Her three-dimensional, geometric wall reliefs represent a product aesthetic that counters the hard-edge with an up-to-date interpretation.
Beverly Fishman, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1955, graduated from the Philadelphia College of Art and Yale University in Connecticut.
She lives and works in Detroit/Michigan, where she chairs the painting department at Cranbrook Academy of Art since 1992.
Her work is in the collections of the Detroit Institute of Arts (Michigan), the Miami Art Museum (Florida), and the Istanbul Art Centre, among others. Most recently, she has had exhibitions at Miles McEnery Gallery, New York (2020); Cranbrook Museum of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan (2020); Columbus of Museum of Art, Columbus, Ohio (2019); Lehmann Maupin, New York (2019); Kavi Gupta Gallery, Chicago (2018); DOSE, an exhibition curated by Nick Cave at CUE Art Foundation, New York (2017); and Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, Istanbul (2017).
