FOURTH FRIDAYS FOR FRIENDS

Beverly Fishman discusses Pill Spill her installation that juxtaposes eighty-six hand-blown glass capsules in varying sizes, colors, and patterns. Representing pharmaceutical pills, the capsules are configured to underscore a viewer's personal relationship to medications. These tantalizing yet paradoxical pills-glass capsules that won't dissolve-serve as a reminder that medicine can be both a cure and a poison. In 2010 Fishman created a larger version of Pill Spill for the Toledo Museum of Art during an artist residency as part of the institution's guest artist Glass Pavilion project.

For more than two decades, Fishman's largely abstract work in different media has explored the human relationship to science and medicine by mixing optical patterns with vibrant colors and representational elements taken from pharmaceutical and scientific imaging systems. Another work by Fishman, C.E.L. 109, is part of the DIA's permanent collection and can be seen in a nearby gallery. Pill Spill remains on view through the end of the year.
