The new work for ‘Certain Distance’, was made during the residency at Independent Studio Artist on Eustace Street, Dublin. Fitzgerald works mainly with acrylic on gesso boards or stretched paper, creating works with foundations in the narrative but with the gesture of the sensory abstract. This work is grounded in the experience of daily observing and remembering.
The experience of looking is not only based on what you see with your eyes – the immediate sensation of something – but also how personal history, individual understanding and internal thought process alter what is perceived. These paintings create suggestions of place and object, but also incorporate private sensation and experience. Her iconography originates in the everyday, an eclectic gathering of images, daily observations and random things seen.
