“I am playing with many ideas, but there is always a tremendous debt to Alexander Calder,” says sculptor Mark Davis. “His love of playfulness, movement, and spatial relationships are the foundation of what I do.”
Fitzgerald is always stopping the water from breaching the dam with color. So he holds back, reserving with a limit. “Summer Silver Morning has just enough working brushstrokes, patterns that employ emotional charge and describe the landscape,” explains Fitzgerald. “It has color that’s evocative but local. I am building from life.”

“These two talented men capture movement in very different ways,” John Spain, owner of the gallery, says. “Fitzgerald uses acrylic paint on canvas to create the illusion of movement with broad strokes and organic shape. Where Davis bends and shapes metal to form three-dimensional mobiles that not only move with the slightest breeze but also have a feeling of flow that is felt even in stillness.”
