Gregory William Frux
I am a realist oil painter who finds inspiration in both urban landscapes and wilderness vistas. My cityscapes document and celebrate New York, finding beauty in unexpected places; industrial sites, bridges, brownstones, night scenes and the waterfront. My wilderness paintings are inspired by remote travel such as the Rockies, Andes, Antarctica as well as the Mohave and Redrock deserts. I have served as artist in residence in numerous National Parks and aboard cruise ships in both polar regions. My creative practice also includes illustrated travel journals, field sketching and print making. My work has been show at Lincoln Center, the Cordova Historical Museum, Long Island University, Brooklyn College, the Greenwich Arts Council, the offices of HBO and the United States Embassies in Ethiopia and Madagascar. My work is in the collections of the Library of Congress, the American Alpine Club Library, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, The NYC Board of Education.
