Leo Fitzmaurice:

May 11th - June 8th

Convenience Gallery Pop Up, 


By Leo Fitzmaurice

FIT IT is a new site-specific work by artist Leo Fitzmaurice at the Convenience Pop Up in the Old M&S on Birkenhead High Street, as part of The Town is the Gallery programme. 

Leo has said: "As with much of my work it is really a response to existing material - in this case the physical fabric of the store itself. In particular the wall paneling, which struck me as having a satisfying logic to it - as many functional things do. Taking these simple linear panels to form a housing for a paired down alphabet - I then lined the walls with words associated with the original function of the space."

The result of this process and practice is a large-scale installation of text work that can be read simultaneously as text or viewed as a graphic pattern.

About Leo Fitzmaurice: 

I try to come to projects without any preconceptions and ideas, usually starting with some sort of observation. Having said that, I do have particular themes that I return to, particularly the push/pull of language within our environment: things such as signage, packaging, flyers and posters. I rework this sort of material keeping its energy but changing its original intention.
