Laura Fitzgerald was born in 1983 and studied Fine Art in the National College of Art & Design Dublin. She graduated in 2007 with a First Class Honours Degree and Distinction in
her thesis, 'Quantum Physics & the Art of Matthew Ritchie'.
Fitzgerald's practice combines elements of drawing, installation, works on paper and video. Ideas which inform her work relate to memory, nostalgia, real and imagined histories,
perspective, the minuet and the unseen. Recent projects have included, 'Tracing Time', a percent for art scheme commissioned by the Dept Education & Science, now on permanent
display in the Presentation Primary School Portarlington.
Fitzgerald was Artist in Residence for six months in Waterford Healing Arts Centre where she produced a body of work in an acute hospital context. She also ran a series of
contemporary art lectures and workshops for the staff of WRH.
Previous exhibitions include; Preponderance of the Small, a Gallery 3 initiative by the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Once upon a time, Waterford Healing Arts Trust, For Our House
is the Corner of our World, Talbot Gallery, the RHA Annual Exhibition and RUA invited artist 2009.
