My goal for this piece was to combine conflicting imagery in a single narrative picture. In this painting, a sister to my piece "Benevolent Leader," I combined war propaganda with Alaskan scenery (the midnight sun and raven).

Gregory Fricker

Holt, Michigan

Gregory Fricker uses art to study neuroscience related to trauma and painful memories. After retiring from the military, he attended Michigan State University where he earned a BFA in studio art. He is a multi-media artist and United States Army veteran based in Michigan who initially began creating art as a hobby and a way to cope with a particularly bad deployment. After a successful exhibit and several commissions, he refined his process with the support of his teachers nad mentors at MSU. Throughout his portfolio, he shares with us his own traumatic memories using symbolic objects. By avoiding specific depictions, he creates an emotional buffer against the discomfort of the trauma and allows his viewers to interpret to his compositions using their own memories.
