“Working in the usually hard-edged medium of video, Kit Fitzgerald is a maverick sensibility. Everything she videotapes or creates on the spot… glows with a mysterious inner radiance.”

– The New York Times

“Ms. Fitzgerald is working at the forefront of a kind of video art that transcends everyday notions of televsion. In its technical sophistication and spiritual-esthetic seriousness, it makes even the hippest manifestations of MTV seem like children’s cartoons.”

– The New York Times 

“Her images are avant-garde painting of a high order.” – The New Yorker
