Margaret Fitgerald continues to work in abstract compositions, creating work that is brimming with clues and references to our own socio-political problems and their place in the landscape. The notion of the landscape is both natural and cultural. Fitzgerald plays with our understanding of the human dilemma on a stage literally crafted from Nature herself; scribing and cutting the evidence into the paint. Thus, the paintings are active and dynamic; presenting themselves a little differently as we become more familiar with their details.
In this group of work, there are land forms (islands, beaches, etc...) and animals (the tortoise, dragonfly) as platforms for Margaret's comparble pondering of mankind's issues.
Opening Reception February 17, 5-8 p.m.
