Jason Fitzgerald: Shaky Ground - Art Collector

Jason Fitzgerald, 'Toxic tectonic 1' 2018, timber, rust paint, acrylic, 32.0 x 45.0 x 35.0 cm. Courtesy of the artist and Jan Murphy Gallery, QLD.   Queensland sculptor Jason Fitzgerald’s latest series of ceramic and timber works will comprise a new solo exhibition, Shaky Ground, at Jan Murphy Gallery.

Until recently, Fitzgerald was solely known for geometrically formed timber sculptures made of salvaged timber shards and off-cuts, but of late he has been working in the ancient medium of clay. Shaky Ground contains both timber and ceramic works. Speaking about the series, Fitzgerald states:

“The aesthetic of the broken has always been an inspiration, where the weathered surface has inspired my previous work; my new work draws on the more destructive force of an earthquake. The works capture a moment in time, where tectonic plates collide under the earth’s surface, reshaping the landscape, cracking sidewalks and toppling building facades.’

Exhibition Opens:
2pm-4pm, Saturday 28 April 2018
Exhibition Closes:
