A chat with Stephen Fitz-Gerald

I have had the distinct pleasure of chatting with one of my favorite artists...Stephen Fitz-Gerald. I discovered his work while networking on Facebook, and fell in love with his incredibly diverse expression. Stephen creates music, enjoys photography & creates lovely and moving metal sculpture

Stephen enjoys many different mediums, as he believes that becoming fluent in as many as possible gives a greater scope and depth to ones artistic expression. He believes an idea isn't always reducible to sculpture, sometimes being more aptly expressed in a song, painting, or in a photograph.

He proclaims that he had the very best of teachers...his parents. The art of expression being made available to him by his parents allowed Stephen to develop a deep appreciation for the arts.

If you sample some of Stephen music, you may be surprised to find out that he creates everything on a little 4 track recorder, while playing his own instruments. He enjoys playing his acoustic guitar & synthesizer (as he put and creates his music in the late night hours, in the peace of his home. He has no desire to play in public, as he uses his music to listen to in the studio while working on metal sculpture, or for reverie before and after sleep, where most of his sculptural ideas get formed.
So, cheers to you Stephen...your art is a joy to appreciate. Thank you and keep creating!

If you are lucky enough to live in the Napa, CA area, be sure to visit Stephen's current one man show at Liken Gallery which will be available through August 2013.
