Margaret Fitzgerald and Stephen Davis interviewed by Kathryn M. Davis on ArtBeat
February 17, 2015

Margaret Fitzgerald is inspired by the landscape that exists between the natural and urban worlds and the many oppositions and contradictions it presents. Thus, her paintings are active and dynamic with their own oppositions, such as bold colors and shapes next to neutralized palettes and detailed scratches in the painting surface; combinations of strong gestural strokes next to figurative elements; and raw textured surfaces adjacent to calligraphic details. Stephen Davis' paintings are a combination of figurative elements, negative spaces and gestural abstractions. Most notably, nearly all of them contain negative-space images of chairs and the combinations of images and other painting events are akin to furniture and architectural elements as experienced by an active viewer in an interior space. An art gallery in Santa Fe, David Richard Gallery, the premier contemporary art gallery, is located in the Santa Fe New Mexico's Railyard Arts District and specializes in post-war abstract art including Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, geometric, hard-edged, Op, Pop, Minimalism and conceptualism in a variety of media. Featuring both historic and contemporary artwork, the gallery represents many established artists who were part of important art historical movements and tendencies that occurred during the 1950s through the 1980s on both the east and west coasts. The gallery also represents artist estates, emerging artists and offers secondary market works.
