Fritz Proctor is a contemporary American painter who loosely explores the themes of time and memory in relation to the self and the collective. His discipline is derived from nature and a studio practice where he collages personal archives with visual information that is harvested from the natural world. Fritz’s paintings deal with time and memory as felt physically and mentally; they are a mixture of certainty, uncertainty, scale, abstraction, and representation. Through his layered process Fritz creates visual poems that display an experience of what remembering is like.
In addition to painting, Fritz also makes videos on TikTok that document his artistic practice. His TikTok account has a following of over 4.5 million people and has been featured on major social media accounts such as Buzzfeed, Unilad, and Instagram's Instagram.
Fritz Proctor received his BA in Studio Art from the University of Buffalo. He has exhibited nationally, and internationally in numerous solo and group shows. Fritz, currently, resides in Boston, MA where he paints from his home studio.
