Julia Fish: bound by spectrum

Venue

For three decades, Julia Fish has used her house and its vernacular architecture — a Chicago storefront designed by Theodore Steuben in 1922 — as the basis for a system of mapping color, form, and light in paintings and works on paper. For the first time in over 20 years, this exhibition presents a survey of the last decade of Fish's paintings and works on paper and debuts three new paintings.
