Considering Art Podcast – Robert Fitzmaurice, British painter

In this podcast, Robert Fitzmaurice talks about the art that excited him even as a young boy, how his father’s POW experience in World War II sowed the seed for his interest in family dynamics, how his practice was influenced by the Constructivist painter Adrian Heath, how themes of masculinity and militarism developed, and how lattices, grids and repeated motifs with expressive use of colour became his signature style and is informed by art from various cultures..
