Robert Fitzmaurice (born 1960) is originally from the Midlands but has lived in Reading since 1984. His painting, printmaking and mixed media work is characterised by an expressive use of colour and form. The human figure is a potent motif for him, and it appears in various guises, shaped by ideas about the human condition and rites of passage. He studied Fine Art at the universities of Sunderland and Reading, and through exhibitions in the UK and abroad his work has entered a number of private collections.
Notable exhibitions include: ‘Artist the Day’ Angela Flowers Gallery, London (1984); his solo show ‘From here on in’ Corn Exchange, Newbury (2010); and ‘Heaven+Hell’ Espacio Gallery, London (2014)
