In Justin FItzpatrick’s work, the act of painting is a way to explore the idea of conceptual metaphors; metaphors that structure our world view and perspective. Painting, in an improvisational mode, can turn the process of metaphor into a visual performance or an evidence, a constant sliding across the surface of a subject, it can enact the semantic jumps the mind makes when likening one thing to another and it provides an evidence of this fundamental activity. Recent works have focussed on diagrammatic, hydraulic imagery, drawing on the visual vocabulary of anatomical drawings, medieval illumination, sci fi book covers and Art Nouveau illustration.
Justin Fitzpatrick (b. 1985, Dublin) lives and works in Brussels. Recent solo exhibitions include :
