Art Frederic

Art Frederic is an illustrator and occasional writer. His current pen and ink work has been focusing on the relationship between image and text. With regard to his latest series he says: 'In most cases the image desperately needs the text to justify its existence but in some instances it simply adds to the apparent absurdity. It is the absurd that I am interested in, mostly because I believe life to be absurd but partly because I believe that by recognizing it we can better understand the truth and perhaps even come to laugh about it.'
