Fishman's layered works often eschew the brush; she uses scrapers and trowels to create these marked, deep surfaces. In the late 60s and early 70s the artist switched to working solely in sculpture. Always active in the feminist movement her series Angry Women announced her return to painting. These pieces were representations of important feminists.
Her reexamination and appropriation of abstract expressionism was something of an "up yours" to the prevailing art theories of the day (usually such theories need a good "up yours" or two).
Benglis was another artist working in the late 60s. Her poured latex and foam sculptures. Metaphor and biomorphic shapes were common in her work. She currently divides her time between New Mexico and India.
