Leo Fitzmaurice will talk about his practice and the sculpture he is showing in our group exhibition 'good things come...'


Leo Fitzmaurice makes work that draws on the vocabulary of the familiar: urban architecture, traditional landscapes, branded packaging and cleaning products. His material is the quotidian; objects, surfaces and spaces are re-worked with simple interventions applied in unexpected ways.

These alterations allow objects and materials to be encountered afresh and reassessed. He has said of his work that he sees it as simply a way of ‘refreshing language’.

Living and working in Liverpool, he has exhibited in solo and group shows in the UK and internationally. Recent solo exhibitions include /_ at The Sunday Painter, London and Sometimes the Things You Touch Come True, Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

He was the 2011/12 winner of The Northern Art Prize.

good things come... is curated by Kevin Hunt and Hannah Harris and will be open Mon - Sat from 27 April - 4 June 2016.
