Thanks for visiting.

The art work collected on this website were created in the mid-to-late 1970’s, and are often evocative of that era – the long hair, the bell bottoms, the frequent references to “Mary Jane” – but mostly they evoke, in those of us who knew the artist, what might have been. A great career. Success. Fulfillment. Sadly, it was not to be.

A young man struck down before his prime is a tragedy to his family; in the case of a talented artist, it is a tragedy to the world. Seth Alan Fishman, my oldest brother and close friend, died in a car accident in 1979 at the age of 20 and although prolific, left behind a relatively small body of work. The potential to create so much more, to speak to people unknown and the world at large, is obvious, I think, when you consider particularly the often humorous, sometimes reflective drawings, created “simply” with pen or pencil and paper, an eye for detail, and a wide-ranging imagination. If just one stranger, one person unknown, takes in these collected works of art and is moved – well, that’s the reason for being for this website.
