Beverly Fishman: Another Day in Paradise features a selection of seven large works from Fishman’s recent Pills series. Pulling aesthetically from the minimalists and pop artists of the 1960s and 1970s, Fishman’s recent work blurs the line between painting and sculpture while investigating the way the pharmaceutical industry markets and brands their products to consumers.
