    Introduction :First comes the selection of materials brought the canvas.... I believe Fred deserves the classic oils as opposed the more transcendental aspects of watercolors. He lives through a medium of deep reds, stark blacks edged with bronze, earthy browns. These are the colors invoked through the topics of his poetry. It is abrupt, sometimes harsh and always going for the throat of that held sway and so often savaged beneath his pen. He pulls no punches, offering up reality sans apology and charging in where angels might fear to tread. We need people like him to offset the gilded spin of dreamers; he, the bedrock,-- a plinth upon which the fluted vase must always rest. This is not to say he commands no beauty. No. Rather, it a quiet roil beneath the indictments, the sword, the crucifix...a thousand thorns. For this, I admire; for this, I put pen to paper to laud, and by way of such, encourage you, the reader of this brief synopsis to chance the grotto. The man is visceral,... More > wielding justice as very few are given. Perhaps it a curse...this I cannot say, but, if so, a glorious one. Do not look for frills; there are no crystal swans, no otherworldly allusions, nor illusion. It is as I have said: a dose of object, unmitigated reality, as if he singlehandedly bent on salvaging mankind, and by such proxy, perhaps, himself as well. Be prepared for nothing less.
