Janet Fish is a realist painter, best known for her still lifes of familiar and everyday objects like fruit, flowers, and glassware, which she sources from her home, travels, and flea markets. For Fish, however, the central subjects of her works are not the discrete objects, but the effects of light and “the complex relationship of color and form from one area of the painting to another. Eventually everything is intertwined.” The artist sometimes spends entire days creating arrangements of objects in different light to paint. She attributes her attraction to vivid color to time spent in Bermuda as a child. As a graduate student at Yale, Fish studied color theory with Josef Albers, and was particularly influenced by the works of Fairfield Porter and Alex Katz.
