Artist – Ann Williams-Fitzgerald

‘Resurrection’

“As a practising visual artist and independent curator, my interests are multi-faceted, and I work across all media. My art is an attempt to allow the image to make itself clear with minimal influence of the mind, by a process of being still and receptive to what it is that wants to be captured. I have always been passionate about making my art. I use the journey of artistic expression as a doorway inward. Uncovering ever deepening ways of ‘being’ into the experience of life, transmitting to the viewer the sublime metaphors through symbols, colour, and rich backgrounds. I draw inspiration from my intuition and interpretation on life experience. My work crosses over into abstract expressionism and minimalism”.   Annie Fitz

Artworks by Ann Williams-Fitzgerald

‘BODY’

A personal visual language of colours and symbols. To me colours, symbols and shapes can convey strong emotions. In this 2-panel work titled Body & Soul, I have used green to convey the sense of body or the physical and purple to convey a sense of soul or the spiritual.

‘SOUL’

A personal visual language of colours and symbols. To me colours, symbols and shapes can convey strong emotions. In this 2-Panel work titled Body & Soul, I have used green to convey the sense of body or the physical and purple to convey a sense of soul or the spiritual.

‘Self’

This work represents one’s journey through conception, birth, marriage, death and reincarnation. To me this circle of life is a never ending dynamic. The essence of self. Size: 80cmx100cm

‘Circles of Life’

 

This work is about the journey of life being a blank canvas, with lots of movement and emotions going on around us. It’s about marriage/union of two becoming three. It’s the rhythm or music of life. Size: 115cmx150cm

‘Threads of Life’ Artist Book

Meditation and contemplation is a power that taps into a dimension of awareness, one that is outside space and time. It’s like stepping through a doorway into another space and time.

And the Music Goes On Exhibition 2020. This work is about remembrance and the journey forward – listening to the music of life. C Type Photographic Print

‘Down By the River – Rust & Rope’

The importance for me as a photographer is not just to record the growing desolation of isolated items, buildings and locations but to react to what I see – exploring the interplay of light, texture, and colour as an item slowly falls apart. Previous owners provided the raw materials of structure, form, and function at the old boat jetties along the Pioneer River. C Type Photographic Print
