Alice Fitzgerald is a Dublin-based visual artist and designer. She is inspired by the organic forms of nature and the geometric shapes of her city life. Through an abstract and minimal approach, she demonstrates the playful interactions between line, colour and form. Her idiosyncratic, elemental forms strike their own kind of balance between order and chaos, with every element forming part of the whole. Influenced by modernist and mid-century artists like Ellsworth Kelly, Jean Arp and Matisse, Alice takes to heart August Endell’s belief that even if abstract forms signify nothing, represent nothing, remind us of nothing, they still have the power arouse our souls as deeply and strongly as any other art form. No matter how simple those forms are, there is always something new to grasp. Starting her career art director for the infamous Mongrel magazine, to working in various design studios such as Zero-G, to setting up her own design and visual arts practice. She holds a BA in Visual Communications and MA in Professional Design Practice from TU Dublin. Her work is held in Dublin City Council’s permanent collection.
