Biography

See review


Tom Fitzgibbon has been making electronic art since grade school in California, producing odd assemblages of wood, computers, lights and wire. Some are small Joseph Cornell sized painted boxes but also larger works including wall pieces, infernal machines, display cases and store signs. With no formal art training, but surrounded by artist friends and family, this outsider artist tends to mirror street life with vibrant, saturated colors or quietly lit constructions with a variety of incandescent, LED, neon, laser and other light sources.

The pieces can be interactive (e.g., detecting faces and reacting), while others wait for the viewer to experience. Some influences are Tinguely, Cornell, Turrell, Holzer, Corley, Burchfield and Miyajima.
