“Meridian” is the first solo show of the American artist Kyle Fitzpatrick on the art scene of Bucharest. Present in numerous group exhibitions, Kyle Fitzpatrick will exhibit within Anaid Art Gallery a selection of large paintings and a series of drawings.

The exhibition “Meridian” of the American artist Kyle Fitzpatrick brings once again into question issues of contemporary art related to matter and materiality. By using in his artistic approaches a variety of elements and texture he underlines aspects on how to interpret and approach the canvas in question. If the drawing of Kyle Fitzpatrick is extremely delicate and airy, when it comes about painting, issues on image’s materiality is resolved by dealing with pictorial surfaces with juxtaposition of elements taken from the collage technique and/or by successive overlapping of material.

Loss of mystery leads to destruction or impossibility to recover the past. Septic spaces, often unclear, where shadows of Kyle Fitzpatrick dwell, describe a world in which the individual disappears. Figures in the works and devastated areas recall a world that is about to disintegrate remaining only certain elements. People form Kyle Fitzpatrick's works do not communicate, they have no direct contact with the viewer, are more like presences, the artist being first of all concerned with the representation of the sense of human presence and on the other hand with the context. Therefore, the viewer is confronted with a series of images where the human eye sees the human presence and feels it, but can not perceive in its materiality.

The American artist Kyle Fitzpatrick lives and works in Berlin.
