Donald Fitzpatrick

In May, the Crowell Gallery asks it’s viewers to explore the relationship between artist and machine. Don Fitzpatrick’s Pendulum Autographs are expressions of the frequencies and movement of pendulums on paper. The drawings in this exhibit were produced using three different machines he designed himself; a three pendulum rotary harmonograph, a two pendulum lateral harmonograph and and electro-mechanical drawing machine called a pintograph. We welcome you to visit and consider the many spirals the art of interactive kinetic pendulums produces when applying ink to paper. Ask yourself – is this table fitted with drawing machine as much a tool as paint brush, ink pen or camera lens? The images are dynamic, dimensional, abstract and encapsulate movement. A harmonograph will be set up in the gallery throughout the month of May. There will be an artists reception Saturday, May 4th between 11 am and 1 pm during which Don will be available to discuss the origin and features of this creative medium.
