“My work is built up over a prolonged drawing process before etching. I see the discipline of etching more in line with sculpture than painting or photography. The work is very process based.” - John Fitzpatrick
John Fitzpatrick's work explores the relationship between image and object. The work recognises the print as a residue of process. Implicit within his work are dualities such as form and void, surface and depth, movement and stillness, considered and incidental and duration and instant.
The works are built up over a prolonged drawing period and an innumerable network of lines. These lines are etched and reworked to give the work a sense of three dimensional depth.
Education: BA (Hons) in Fine Art Printmaking from the Glasgow School of Art.
