For 25 years I have been working exclusively in the tondo form. Roundness is fundamental to my visual thinking. The form is nature’s most efficient; it is also able to convey a subtle essence of wholeness, interconnection and metaphysical purpose.
I thin oil paint until it is in a fluid form. Gravity and the physical differences of each pigment – some settle quickly, some settling slowly – create flow patterns. I build up these flow forms in layers, producing a luminous, subtle surface. I use a gilded ground not in a decorative manner, but to indicate something beyond our physical world, something metaphysical. “Karen Fitzgerald’s paintings transform matter into cosmic revelations.” - Michaël Amy
