Whistle and Flute
American Contemporary is excited to announce the opening of an exhibition of new work by Daphne Fitzpatrick, titled "Whistle and Flute". The title, taken from the machismo world of cockney rhyming slang, strongly reflects Daphne's playful and approach to metaphor, gender and imagery, where, seemingly captured in an instant, one thing becomes another or another thing is already something else.
Fitzpatrick spent some time earlier in the year teaching in Tokyo, at Tokyo Tech, before traveling around Asia and Europe. The photographs collected on this trip, numbering in the high hundreds, have been edited down to approximately ten images. Six will be exhibited in the show, and four others at NADA Miami, where Fitzpatrick will have a solo presentation. These photographs will be coupled with sculptures that continue on from the pieces made for her recent inclusion in "It is what it is, or is it?" at Contemporary Art Museum, Houston, the first exhibition curated by Dean Daderko for the museum.
