Andrew Fitzpatrick

"I most enjoy painting the human figure in combinations of more than one: predominantly people interacting harmoniously; with each other or with place, sometimes with the grace of mystery to intrigue the viewer. I regard my paintings as works of fiction; using the dramas acted out in traditional stories or concerned with the elusive meaning running beneath the surface of our lives. Lately, a particular dance, known as Argentine Tango, has been a theme of my work; exploring the elegant combinations of angled limbs and torsos, creating their positive and negative shapes on the picture plane in freeflowing variations" Andrew Fitzpatrick

'' Then as all actions of mankind

Are but a labyrinth or a maze

So let your dances be entwined ''

Ben Jonson

Andrew interviewed by Tango master Dani Iannarelli on painting, dance, music and particularly Tango.

Critical commentary:  

“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.”

Virginia Fraser
(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”

Edward Gage
