Art > Painting

Jean Fitzgerald paints with oils on wood surfaces. She meditates on the harmony found in seemingly mundane domestic interiors. The same windows or doorways of a single space can be examined multiple times to find endless compositions. The typical items of a room - chairs, hanging pictures, an uneven window ledge, electrical cords piled on the floor, or the vine of a plant disrupting the straight lines around it - all suggest stories and offer hints about those who inhabit the space. By using painterly brushwork and intimate markings, she seeks to reveal the richness and subtleties in simple spaces, and frame the aesthetic experiences always available to a patient eye.
