Background: Ryan Fitzgerald

Ryan Fitzgerald has turned his attention to the Vanitas lately, perhaps channeling Marian Drew along the way. Working in home made studios with found light sources, Ryan's series considers masculinity and puts a humourous, yet deep, spin on the notion of vanity and the perceived emptiness of an earthly existence. You can see some work in the flesh at Watt Space and at the Newcastle Art Space Emerging Art Award. But be quick, the exhibitions end soon.
