THE REBELLIOUS WORKS OF FRED STONEHOUSE
January 27, 2018
A major figure in Wisconsin art, Fred Stonehouse is nationally recognized for his beautifully executed artwork and witty sense of rebellion. His style has a sophistication that reflects his diverse, cross-cultural interests, and outsider and folk art influences.
Often encompassing religious or surreal contexts, his paintings are a materialization of his nostalgia for familiar cartoon figures of the past, blended with the artist's own delicate balance of humor, beauty and derangement. The artist, a Milwaukee native, has enjoyed over fifteen museum exhibitions across the country including a retrospective at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and has been featured in Blab and other magazines.
