About Fred Nold

Fred Nold

Artist Biography:

Born: June 8, 1936 in White Plains, New York

Education: Graduate of Parsons School of Design and BFA from New York University   

Artist's Statement: "Throughout my career, I have attempted to create a social statement which would foster the awareness of the majestic beauty that surrounds us in our everyday existence"

New York Times art critic, William Zimmer wrote"

"The most riveting of the works that carry a social theme is 'Anaconda No. 18' by Fred Nold.  Near the Municipal Building in Hastings where the gallery is housed, was a large industrial part that in now unclaimed shambles.  Every piece of trash and detritus, including two classic large automobiles from the 1950's is preserved as if in aspic.  Mr. Nold's van Gogh-like short brushstrokes signal emotion.  That our back is to the Hudson in this painting is a chilly statement".
