The Lab is pleased to present a solo show by Doron Fishman entitled Identical Operations in the Front Gallery. Fishman (b. 1970 in San Francisco) completed his MFA at The California College of the Arts in 2010. Trained as an engineer, Fishman designs mechanisms of varying
complexity to create paintings with ink on paper.

Works in Fishman’s Identical Operations series are constructed by a set of predetermined motions and conditions for the paper such as dipping, cutting, ink application, hanging, and dripping. These actions, inspired in part by the repetitive motions of an assembly line, define the general possibilities of the resulting image. The individual paintings, due to the similarities of their production, display parallel geometries in their resulting aesthetics. Minor variations, however, inevitably reveal themselves, portraying variation in the ever-changing environment, the unpredictability of the materials, and the introduction of human error.

With ink, gravity, paper, air, motion, and mechanics, Fishman explores abstraction, light, and phenomena.
