Beverly FISHMAN

"Our need to reconcile technology and humanity is a major concern that generates ethical, legal, spiritual debates specific to our time. The art of Beverly Fishman highlights this modern identity crisis whose paintings engage us in critical questions that strengthen our individuality and technology-dependent culture." text by Joe Houston
