Fred Struthers has a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. He has been drawing with the Mendocino figure drawing collective since the early 1990s -- aside from a few years when his costume and textile book business consumed all free time. Lately he has painted a series of acrylic small-scale colorful fantasy compositions that suggest to him states of being, essence, dissolution and rebirth.
Fred understands that the experience of drawing the figure in its infinite variety of mood, form, attraction, and historical reference is an end in itself but can also inform and inspire multiple forms of creative expression.
