Janet Fish

Fish Vase, by Janet Fish

"For centuries, in managing households, keeping the books, organizing social events, or numerous other tasks, women have tracked the minutiae on which all our lives turn. It certainly seems at times that it is women's inherited ability to keep multiple tasks running simultaneously as they split themselves between home, work, family, friends and colleagues. This practical awareness of the most basic elements in our environment may add to women's appreciation for the form, and the irony, of everyday objects. These forms can then be surveyed and recombined in infinitely varied narrative representations."

From the catalogue: Nothing Overlooked: Women Painting Still Life, essay by Janet Marquardt-Cherry
