Dumpster Fire new work by Dan Frueh

Painting, Art Show, Mixed Media
Dumpster Fire'
Recent work by Dan Frueh

Dan Frueh's work is inspired by the confluence of creation and entropy. He makes images of that which humans have created, and nature’s attempts to reclaim it. Dan finds beauty in the inevitable decay of what we have sought to control. "I see my work as abstract landscapes, emerging from the real world around us. These pieces of the physical environment reflect not only the larger landscapes we navigate, but also the natural and political environment of our times."

The past few years have caused Dan to change the way he approaches his subject matter, the images I choose, and the way I treat them. For me, there has always been beauty in the slow burn of oxidation. Recently, I have been recognizing more of the chaos within the beauty. We live in a time of natural, social, and political tumult. The world has always been on fire, but the pace is accelerating. This body of work reflects some of my interpretations of the world around me, the environment we inhabit, and its impact on the lives we live.

Dan Frueh has lived and worked as an artist in Kansas City since 1992. He graduated from the photography department of the Kansas City Art Institute in 1994. He has worked as a photographer, artist, carpenter, craftsman, bartender, gallery owner and family man ever since. He has shown work locally and nationally, His work can be found in many private collections.
