About this artwork

Chicago-based artist Julia Fish has a particular affinity for working on paper. Over the years, she has created series of drawings in various media that extend her painting ideas but also exist as independent bodies of work. Always focused on her immediate environment, Fish creates drawings based on memories and observations of the conditions in her garden and the physical properties of her house’s interior and exterior. She employs media to evoke—rather than mimic—physicality, touch, and time, as seen here.
