Chicago-based artist Patrick Fitzgerald uses his works as a means of resurrecting the idyllic worlds he once found in the industrial surroundings of his youth. Raised in Grand Rapids, MI, he looks to the raw beauty and inherent potential of his manufacturing hometown as an endless source of creative inspiration. Working from found materials, Fitzgerald constructs miniature versions of soap box cars, experimenting with futuristic forms yet amplifying a profound resonance with the past. Each car is then finished with designs culled from an old 1945 industrial directory, a nod to the small business sponsorship of box car racing. Constructed with meticulous care, each vehicle is imbued with a sense of history and latent vitality, traceable in the minute details of the cramped driver's cockpit and the weathered charm of its hand-painted finish.

Chipboard, wood, mixed media, collage, acrylic paint, and oil paint. Set on a custom wood mount.
