Running through the 22nd, Lunch Drawings features new work on paper, including a series dedicated to Fitzpatrick’s longtime compatriot and muse: the late, great Lou Reed.
Fitzpatrick’s work is first and foremost grounded in history. This go-round, that translates to highly-detailed, mythological portraits of Reed’s songs.
The exhibition is made up of 70 pieces altogether, including the one-off series the show takes its name from: the pieces Fitzpatrick drew at lunch — work he says is a “diary and collection of visual wishes.”
Time for you to take a walk on the wild side.
