Bishop typically begins with digitized prints on paper or canvas, painting over them with various shapes, colors, and textures, creating abstract forms that seem to float and interact with each other. In certain works, Bishop has used actual brain scans charting the progression of his father’s battle against Alzheimer’s. Mixed media paintings selected for the exhibition ASB: Memory and Loss serve to commemorate Amasa Stone Bishop, a physicist who died from complications of Alzheimer’s in 1997.
