Dorian FitzGerald

Canadian, born 1975

Dorian FitzGerald uses a labor-intensive method, refined over years of experimentation, to create monumental paintings of excessive opulence. Taking digitally enhanced photographs found online as his starting point, FitzGerald produces an acetate transfer to serve as his guide. He then delineates different color segments using caulking on canvas, and fills in each section with acrylic tones in a paint-by-numbers style. The artist depicts a range of subjects, including Oktoberfest beer halls in Munich, Elton John’s sunglass collection, and throne rooms. FitzGerald has said that he sees himself “as a contemporary court painter, documenting on a grand scale the material and spatial excesses of our time.” Recently, FitzGerald started to explore more politicized notions of beauty, criticizing decadent over-consumption through his subject matter.
