    Louise Fishman (United States, 1939-2021) was an established artist known for her ambivalent engagement with male-centered abstract painting traditions. Her physical and process-driven work remakes the abstract expressionist gesture and the minimalist grid into tools that communicate history and emotion centered in her identities as Jewish, feminist, and lesbian.
