Biography from Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden:
Following is an exhibition review:

Valley House Gallery presents: Barnaby Fitzgerald …complexions of the avatars…
by PegNews wire

Fitzgerald’s avatars tell age-old tales with the freshness of an inventive, witty mind.  His sensitivity to the tone of light in these scenarios captivates the senses.

SMU Professor Barnaby Fitzgerald’s recent egg tempera paintings reveal the subtle complexions of the avatars that personify his fantasies – all derived from a wondrous and rich inner life sparked by dreams of history, literature, science, music, food, and memory. Fitzgerald’s avatars tell age-old tales with the freshness of an inventive, witty mind. His sensitivity to the tone of light in these scenarios captivates the senses.

Barnaby Fitzgerald’s 6th exhibition at Valley House Gallery includes over 40 recent egg tempera and oil paintings. He has returned to egg tempera to paint small compositions of figures (acting as avatars) bringing to life the artist’s inner life by way of:
-musical reveries ‘drowning out the sound of the sea’
-posing as the three graces and classical heroines
-modeling in artists’ studios cluttered with tools and half-finished sculptures
-‘dreaming of reason’ in seaside rooms
-acting out legends from The Iliad and The Odyssey in mythological lands

Fitzgerald writes of one of his avatars (see Poetry Posing as Music):
...she’s taking a break from the job of posing as the allegory of music. Absorbed in a blank book and unaware, she becomes the allegory for poetry. Her figure is immersed in time; green moss spreads to her feet and her granite legs begin to age and crack. The lute has become unplayable, obsolete, like the capital that no longer supports a pediment...

Fitzgerald’s recent passion for the pure, rich powdered pigments used in egg temperas has resulted in paintings of vast range: some are painted with great delicacy and subtlety and others with deep intensity and saturation of color. His recent oil paintings depict themes similar to his egg temperas, but in much larger scale. In Fitzgerald’s hand, the two media, side by side, expand his range of expression.

Fitzgerald is a Professor of Drawing and Painting at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where he has taught since 1984. Barnaba, his name in Italian and his signature, was born in New York in 1953. His family moved to Italy, where he lived until age 11. He was then educated in Ireland, later returning to Italy, where he received a degree in Printmaking at the Instituto Statale d'Arte in Urbino. He also studied musical composition at the Conservatory Gioacchino Rossini in Pesaro. He received his BFA in Painting at Boston University School for the Arts in 1977, and his MFA in Painting and Printmaking at Yale University School of Art in 1983.

Fitzgerald’s work is in the collections of the Amarillo Museum of Art; Boston University; Meadows Museum (Dallas); Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Museum of the Southwest (Midland); Tyler Museum of Art (Texas); and the Yale Art Gallery Print Collection (New Haven, Connecticut.) Additionally, his works are in numerous private collections throughout the United States and Europe.
