"Astrid Fitzgerald: Cosmic Measures"
2000-11-11 until 2000-12-08
Muroff Kotler Visual Arts Gallery, SUNY Ulster
Stone Ridge, NY, USA United States of America

This exhibition features constructions and works on paper by artist Astrid Fitzgerald of New York City and Kerhonkson. Fitzgerald bases all of her creative work on the concept of Sacred Geometry. The Golden Mean Proportion, recognized as the design principle behind just about everything in nature (most commonly, the nautilus shell), is a harmonious equation which has fascinated philosophers, architects, scientists and artists for thousands of years. The rectangles, triangles and arcs generated by the proportions provide Fitzgerald with an endless invitation to play within the context of a stable composition. Fitzgerald explores, by means of illusionism, the insubstantiality of matter and surface, while simultaneously hinting at the underlying order of the universe. The artist's inspiration comes from modern physics and reflection on the concept of a Creative Principle underlying all manifestation.

Fitzgerald was born and educated in Switzerland. She immigrated to the United States in 1961. She attended Pratt Graphics Center, the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Art Students League, all in New York City. Her work has been widely exhibited in the U.S. and abroad and is part of a large number of corporate and private collections. In 1996 she published a book entitled An Artist's Book of Inspiration: A Collection of Thoughts on Art, Artists, and Creativity (Lindisfarne Press).
