Australia b. 1973
Born Hobart, Tasmania. Lives and works in Queensland.
With a Masters of Visual Arts in Photography from Queensland College of the Arts, Shane Fitzgerald has been exhibiting since 2000.
Shane Fitzgerald’s highly charged scenes - inspired by the Australian landscape's varied terrains and natural phenomena - have earned the Yeppoon/Rockhampton based artist a national and international reputation, with works going into public and private collections - including that of Elton John in the UK.
Fitzgerald's photographs are not captured directly from nature, but created in his studio using light processes. The resulting 'landscapes' combine elements of imagination, history, myth and emotion, and offer an intense array of effects for the viewer to enjoy.
Shane Fitzgerald has an extensive exhibition history both nationally and internationally, and has won the Emerald Art Gallery Art Award on numerous occasions. His work is held in collections both nationally and internationally including the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts in Japan, National Gallery of Australia, Central Queensland University, Gold Coast City Art Gallery, and ANZ Bank Collection Sydney.
