DIRECTOR and CURATOR, KAB Gallery, Terrigal

While pool swimmers are very popular subject matter, Gina Fishman’s particular approach is interesting. Her perspective positions the viewer above looking down on the action below, which provides an unusual voyeuristic feel. This work is full of movement, drawing the viewer’s eye to the swimmers’ arms and splashing water. Gina’s intuitive brushwork appears to have been laid down as fast as the swimmers’ splashes.

FAIR DIRECTOR, The Other Art Fair

This is a beautiful work by Gina Fishman. It really captures the warmth of a summer’s day in Sydney. I’m instantly drawn to the painterly effect, and the white highlights that make the work look so realistic. I love the pop of pink in the swimming caps; it’s a lovely contrast against the turquoise blue of the water. If I lived with this work I think I would have made up a story for each of the swimmers – who they are, where they lived. This would hang very well in a study as a constant source of inspiration.
