Mary FitzGerald’s recent work has been characterized as ‘an attempt to convey vulnerability through images which are impermanent, transient and almost invisible’. In this beautifully produced, large-format book the artist presents a suite of five new paintings, fully illustrated with studio shots and many details. The distinguished critic, Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith, contributes a rigorous essay which fully situates FitzGerald’s work in the context of international contemporary art practice. Full Colour Throughout.
