Fitzhugh Karol

Fitzhugh Karol (b. 1982) is an American artist born in New Hampshire. Karol sculpts in wood, metal, and clay to create artwork that ruminates on man’s imprint in the landscape. Karol’s sculptures use portals, steps, and slopes to respond to their surroundings. The forms of his abstract sculptures draw on silhouettes of actual and imagined landscapes. Karol’s practice ranges from work that can be contained within a gallery setting to large-scale public sculptures that create an inviting and unconventional way to experience art. He creates playful spaces for his viewers to inhabit.

Karol received an MFA in Ceramic Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and a BS in Studio Art from Skidmore College. He apprenticed ceramic artist Toshiko Takaezu, was awarded the UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Process Space Residency, The Edward Albee Foundation Fellowship, Wassaic Project Residency, and the Socrates Sculpture Park’s Emerging Artist Fellowship. Karol’s work has been widely exhibited including Prospect Park and Tappen Park in New York City, Socrates Sculpture Park, The Bartow-Pell Museum, Salomon Contemporary, VOLTA, The LongHouse Reserve, Rochester Contemporary Arts Center, and The Aidron Duckworth Museum.

Karol lives in Brooklyn, New York with his wife, Lyndsay and their two children.
