AUGUST - EVA MARIE FITZSIMMONS


Artist Statement

My paintings are derived from the memory of a place rather than a fixation on the reality of it.  The simplification of the structures generates this uncertainty. The work seeks to find solidity in what is fleeting, and yet is not at all. If one was not seated on a train, or looking out the window of a car they could explore and discover these places in new lights, from new perspectives, but when one is limited by the routine of a journey taken time and time again they begin to find fascination with what is the same. It could be the way the light captures a factory in the morning versus the afternoon, or a glass building transforms as you pass by. These small changes noticed only for a few seconds before they disappear leave lasting impressions. And by associating these impressions with the “destinations” of the journey the trivialities that become so important become intertwined with the subject of my own memory, and calling for solidification in my paintings.
