For over 20 years Tommy Fitzpatrick has been creating a large and diverse body of work. Beginning with painting architecture as a geometric representation and then beginning to push towards abstraction, his work allows viewers to see the world through his perspective. By continuing to creatively push himself he now creates his subject matter by piecing it together from found materials and painting from these sculptures he created.
Born in Dallas in 1969, Tommy Fitzpatrick received a B.A. in Fine Art from the University of Texas in Austin in 1991, followed by an M.F.A. from Yale University School of Art in 1993. His work has been included in over 20 solo and numerous group exhibitions in Dallas, Houston, New York, Madrid, London, Berlin and Seoul. He recently finished a commission for the federal reserve bank of Dallas and his work is in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Menil Collection as well as the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Fitzpatrick is currently an Associate Professor of painting at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. He resides in Austin.
