About

'"Wilton Gallery is pleased to announce a major solo exhibition entitled Moving Through by John Fitzgerald; a new series of oil paintings and sculptures.

'Fitzgerald has compiled 20 years of painting experience in the equine field to create this exhibition. His enthusiasm for horse racing, the colourful gatherings at racecourses, and the immediate landscape around his studio sparked these works.' 'Fitzgerald's experience as a leading equine painter transcends with ease into his sculptural work.

Drawing on his memory, he intuitively captures the energy, movement, and emotion of his subject. His sculptures are made at Cast Foundry in Dublin using the lost wax technique. Fitzgerald's bronzes use rich (colour) and multi-colour patina to create a subtle depth and compliment the texture."'
