“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.”
“Initially, my vision is to see the various elements floating in space, relating to-but not anchored to the earth. By completion, each piece becomes its own very personal universe.”
Honestly, art is such a subjective thing. All art is not made for all people. You should expose yourself to all kinds of art and decide what speaks to you the most fully. The art historian Kenneth Clark said that when you first lay eyes on a wonderful work of art, it “sings.” It should be for the love of what you are seeing.
