Timeless Beauty Paintings by Kevin Fitzgerald at Troika Gallery

Rose Dawn, 18 x 24, oil on canvas, by Kevin Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald’s paintings are highly sought after by collectors and known for their ethereal quality. Kevin has a great reverence for the land and sea and fully expresses it in his tonalist paintings characterized by neutral hues, muted atmospheric tones, and mystery. “Be brief, use the least to say the most.  To gain the particular is to lose the infinite. Painting is a solitary communication and strives to go beyond words,” Fitzgerald comments.  Inspired by the French mid 19th-century romantic landscape painters, Fitzgerald’s paintings are evocative and spiritual. His fields of color are both suggestions and subtle depictions. “The landscape, both cultivated and wild, can serve as a reminder of the beauty and power that exists beyond our grasp.”

Fitzgerald attended the Maryland Institute College of Art where he studied with Raoul Middleman, Chairman of Painting. After receiving his B.F.A. from the Institute, Fitzgerald pursued his M.F.A., under the full fellowship, at George Washington University. His work is collected by  known celebrities, as well as private collectors, both national and international.

Art by 35 other Troika Gallery artists is on display during the Fitzgerald show, with new work constantly refreshing the exhibition space. Troika Gallery features The Finest of Fine Art and is located at 9 South Harrison Street and is open every day from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, Sunday by appointment. For more information, please visit the website at www.troikagallery.com. Timeless Beauty will run through July 3, 2017.
