David Richard Gallery is pleased to present Margaret Fitzgerald’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, Refuge. This suite of new paintings, all created in 2017, are a continuation of her active and dynamic compositions, holding juxtapositions in tension with one another on their painted surfaces. Like her earlier works, these paintings seek to reveal the elusive and inarticulate, the underbelly, the in-between, the bridge between the natural world and those who inhabit it. Yet, these new works evolve further, capturing an urgent sense of contemporaneity. The show’s title, Refuge, named after a painting on display, captures this sense of socio-political unease. Through her painterly mark making, raw textured surface, large fields of color, and calligraphic details, Fitzgerald creates contemplative gestural abstractions with an emotional resonance.
Refuge will be on view from December 15, 2017 through January 20, 2018 with an opening reception on Friday, December 15, 2017 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at David Richard Gallery’s new Santa Fe location at 1570 Pacheco Street, Suite E2, Santa Fe, NM 87505, P: (505) 983 – 9555. A digital catalogue will be available online.
