Emerging Digital Artist, Fred Lipsius, has produced an online gallery of 111 digital paintings selected from over 4000 compositions. The purpose of the website at http://www.FredLipsiusArt.com is to make the artwork accessible to the public and sell high quality prints that are signed, titled and dated by the artist. Prints are priced between $125 and $375.
The Grammy-award winning saxophonist and arranger of the Blood, Sweat & Tears hit song "Spinning Wheel", recipient of 9 Gold Records, and Berklee College of Music professor, has been using his creative talent in a much more visual way these past four years. This came about as a result of a life-changing car accident, wherein Fred found himself spending hundreds of hours in front of a Macintosh computer creating digital compositions with his new instrument of choice: Adobe Photoshop.
"Producing this artwork has been a wonderful, creative awakening for me! It's been a whole new way of experiencing creativity apart from the way I've known as a musician during my life. Not just my creativity, but experiencing the way the hand of God works in someone's life, using what they have, what they are, what they do, love, know and don't know, what they never thought they could accomplish, and especially, using what they are going through at particular times in their life - joy, pain or whatever else."
Initial feedback from art professionals, friends and customers has been excellent: "This is magnificent!... Lovely art, Fred!... The color intensity and contrasts are amazing to me. I guess this has to be one of your aesthetic signatures... Your art, like your music, is very beautiful... I feel I have "walked through" one of the most enjoyable art galleries I have seen. The colors are vibrant and your pieces have life bursting forth."
"Fred is such a master of creativity. He knows how to step aside and let the spirit flow through," says Fred's web designer, John Pritchard. "Helping him design the site and make his art available for the whole world to see has been such a wonderful project for me."
Fred's online gallery also features a section called "Spiritual Reflections," which contains 30 of his pieces with words that are uplifting and contemplative. All his artwork can be purchased directly from the website.
