Dark and Light: 24 Paintings by Bill Frederick

Bill Frederick is a Chicago-based visual artist. His junk-food-and-caffeine-fueled paintings use his preoccupations with friends, family, history, and geography—together with a nagging sense of dread—to reflect his experience of living. Drawn from imagination, photography, and personal observation, his intensely rendered paintings are an expressive and metaphorical response to the world. He uses the simple materials of brush, ink, watercolor, and paper.  Résumé (pdf)
