Jason Fitzgerald is a contemporary sculptor producing assemblages comprised of wood and found materials. He expertly shapes and molds to create wonderfully hand-crafted forms that breathe new life into otherwise discarded materials.
Jason often draws from his everyday experiences in creating his works and has been a keen fisherman of the Moreton Bay area for many years now. His work Sunrise 2015 is inspired by his recent trips:
“My favourite time to go fishing is early morning, targeting the larger fish as they come into the shallow water to feed. Not only is it a great time to fish, but experiencing the Bay come alive with the dawn of a new day is something special.”

Kaleidoscope, 2013, timber and acrylic paint, 106.0 x 46.0 x 37.0 cm
“My process reflects an evolution. Through using scarred and broken wood forms which mirror the psychological regeneration of steel, I allow my pieces to reveal their true form in the same way an archaeologist pieces together fragments of a discarded past.”
Reflective of past discoveries, yet unique in its form, Kaleidoscope speaks about the inter-relationships between animate and inanimate forms, movements and materials.
