Art to me is a long process, a journey through materials and life. I don’t ever want to get stuck in one medium, concept or style, but rather let the material be approached by what needs to be created.
As I grow older, creating for me has become more an emotional and spiritual process. I try to create through my own life experiences, not by only what I see, but what I feel. My art evolves as inspirations, knowledge, and ideas change.
I believe some of my best work comes from the imperfections, unplanned events, and through experimentation. I know that my future is unknown, and I like it that way. My goal is to continue to challenge myself, to think out of the box, and to bring my mark to the art world.
Curtis Frederick was born and raised in the Dallas, Texas area. Although he showed artistic promise at a young age, life events would take Frederick away from his passion for many years. Fortunately, in the last few years he has been given another opportunity to pursue his artistic dreams. Frederick has been sculpting for many years and most recently has been inspired to start painting.
He is an award winning artist across the United States and some of his recent exhibitions include: Buchanan Center of the Arts (IL), Craven Art Council (NC), Farmington Museum (NM), Blue Line Arts (CA), Craighead Green Gallery (TX), Alexandria Museum of Art (LA), and Art League of Hilton Head (SC).
He has collectors of his work across the United States.
