Frederick William Schroeder IV¬†is from Bergen County, New Jersey. He studied¬†Studio Art and Creative Writing as an undergraduate at Bucknell University. Utilizing his areas of study, he looks to create a body of work that incorporates a strong sense of narrative with unique aesthetic values. Frederick draws inspiration from the twentieth-century Fauvist movement and innovative applications of found objects in contemporary art. Through the use of paint and mixed media, he seeks to nurture a style that is energetic in its use of color and lines. He uses the “IV Strokes” to create images that retain the essence of their subject even in their abstraction.
