Jake Oliver-Fishman

Introducing Jake

I have a fascination for materials and their potential to be manipulated and utilised in ways drastically different to their intended use. While there is initially some idea of what form a work will take, the final outcome is often radically different to what was originally conceived. This keeps the making of work an experience of exploration and discovery, which increasingly feeds my desire to create. In the process of realising what I make, there is always an element of chance. This leaves the potential for something spectacular to happen, or for a work to be entirely ruined right up to the point of its completion. The experience of seeing how people interact with what is made, greatly influences the development of ideas and new work.

What we love about Jake

The enigmatic wonder of Jake’s remarkable work is all in his process. Using black ink, white pigments and carrier liquids, he creates a molecular reaction on glass. This mysterious technique is the result of multiple steps including adjusting the height of the glass, layering colors and controlled changes in temperature. The fluid nature of his process and the crisp tonal hues he creates are masterfully revealed in “Sunday” and “Inside”. Seeing is believing!
