Tony Fitzpatrick "Drawings for Crazy Horse" at PIEROGI
James Kalm slips into Williamsburg under cover of night to bring viewers a look and an extended interview with one of Chicago's preeminent contemporary artists, Tony Fitzpatrick. Obsessively worked and fabricated from the cast off refuge of down home culture, Fitzpatrick weaves a narrative of tragic heroics recording a poetic portrait of one of the last of the great Native American leaders Crazy Horse. With simple scraps and elementary colors these collage paintings transcend their small size to express a sense of monumental mourning. Includes an extended interview with Tony Fitzpatrick.
