With an essay by Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith
FitzGerald’s recent work has been characterized as ‘an attempt to convey vulnerability through images which are impermanent, transient and almost invisible’. In this beautifully produced, large-format book the artist presents a suite of five new paintings, fully illustrated with studio shots and many details. The distinguished critic, Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith, contributes a rigorous essay which fully situates FitzGerald’s work in the context of international contemporary art practice.
Mary FitzGerald was born in Dublin in 1956. She has exhibited widely and is a member of Aosdana. Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith has written many catalogues on contemporary art. A former judge of the Turner Prize, he lectures at UCD.
