My work is about landscape. I draw inspiration from the organic world, as well as mans imprint and narrative on the natural and urban landscape.
I strive to create work that is at once bold and nuanced with a history that speaks of the past, present and future.
I am interested in exploring opposing themes such as strength and fragility, hope and despair and growth and decay.
Margaret Holman Fitzgerald was born in London, England. She grew up in Japan and the United States. She studied fine art and art history in New York City at the School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League. She also studied at the Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and received a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of New Mexico.
She currently resides and works in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She has traveled extensively in Europe, Mexico and South America finding inspiration for her work in the art, architecture and urban fabric of these places. Recently she has been exploring the relationship of man to the natural world, the fragility of the natural world and its relationship to man and hope for the future.
Margaret has enjoyed solo shows in New York City, San Francisco and New Mexico. Her work is in private and corporate collections across the United States, Japan and Macao. She is currently represented by the David Richard gallery in Santa Fe and Circa gallery in Minneapolis.
