Fishman presented this lecture on Thursday June 20, 2013 in Portland as part of BECon 2013: CHROMA-CULTURE. Keynote: Material Color - Beverly Fishman The relationship between color and material seems obvious, yet most color theories ignore this critical topic. Common theories conceive of color as abstract, pure color in swatches or wheels. Color, however, is physical and this gap in the theory needs to be addressed by any artist who moves between materials. Michigan-based artist Beverly Fishman will do just that in her keynote address for BECon. Fishman’s high-chroma works have utilized everything from industrial and signage materials, phosphorescence, resin, and now glass. She’ll discuss how her approach to color changes as her materials change.
