Gregory Fricker Fine Artist
After retiring from the United States Army, my family and I settled in Lansing, MI, where I graduated from Michigan State University with a BFA in studio art.
After a lifetime in the military, I became aware of an assortment of emotions and ideas that were at odds with my surroundings. My paintings are meant to act as a visual representation this experience. I juxtapose color, subject, and media so the viewer can discuss how the painting is affected by interjection. Does the painting's narrative evolve with the inclusion of new material; or, is one thing destroyed and replaced by another?
