Artist Statement

"Seasons Of Change" is a body of work created from December 2007 to June 2008; consisting of 40 drawings, paintings and sculptures representing stories, which have an overlying theme of the four seasons. By using the four seasons as a symbolic representation of the four phases of life, for example childhood and old age represented by spring and winter respectively; the work explores the physical and emotional changes that occur with the change of the seasons.

The statues and some frames in this show were part of a trip to Indonesia, where Fish worked with carver Nyoman Sedayatana of Bali to create the 3-dimensional works that enhance these seasonal tales.
