“Fitzpatrick’s figures do not communicate. They are islands consciously grouped together but not relating. This creates a tension laden with psychological content which both soothes and intrigues. He has clearly imbibed the vividness of Italy from his travels; the Venetian light lingers in his imagination. His use of colour is dramatic, expressive, sometimes jarring; it is coupled with a searchingly experimental technique.”
(Vogue, October 1990)
“… Andrew Fitzpatrick an artist whose enjoyment in handling pigment and low key colour has something in common with the Glasgow Boys.
… But Fitzpatrick is more engaged with compositional complexities and using black as a colour, especially for clothes. He also introduces symbolism and narrative, some almost Victorian in sentiment, others mysterious or even sinister. While his inventions with composition and silhouettes are admirable, he is best when mystery takes him to the edge of surrealism”
