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. Presented on a shared stand, this two-car piece underlines the cars as competitor machines. A nod to the small business sponsorship of box car racing, each vehicle is branded with the other's technological counterpart: LINOTYPE vs. MONOTYPE.

Chipboard, card stock tubing, wood, mixed media, acrylic paint, and oil paint. Set on custom wood stand.
