Holly Johnson Gallery presents Tommy Fitzpatrick: "Superflux" opening reception
Holly Johnson Gallery will present the opening of "Superflux," a series of new paintings by Tommy Fitzpatrick. This exhibition marks the artist's fifth solo show at the gallery.
For the past 20 years, color, space, and architecture have been primary sources of inspiration for Fitzpatrick's paintings. In 2013, he began creating sculptural assemblages in the studio that were stand-ins for the architecture. Most recently, Fitzpatrick is using computer-aided design (CAD) programs as the blueprint for the painted imagery. Because of this digitally dominant process, he is now leaving more evidence of the hand, by adding texture, and thickness of paint on the surface in addition to his hard-edge techniques. By combining digital and analog processes, Fitzpatrick is creating work that instigates a conversation between what it is and how it is made. This new approach to painting makes the meticulously painted geometric shapes appear as if it were hovering atop the canvas.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through January 25.
