Emilie Fitzgerald

City & Guilds of London Art School

Fitzgerald uses motifs of food and landscapes to explore themes of temptation, seduction and deception. Her work links nostalgic and kitsch food with landscape imagery, drawn from fairy tales and children’s stories. She describes her paintings as pastiches that combine archetypal images from artists like Salvador Dali and with contemporary digital styles. Through using found imagery, she creates a visual ambiguity that questions what is real and what is artificial; what is found and what is created. She aims to remind the viewer that even the photographic elements are still just paint and creates sumptuous rich landscapes whose fantasy elements are blurred by the skill of her painting.
