Mr. Frux is inspired by both urban and wilderness landscapes. His cityscapes explore industrial sites, bridges, waterfront, nocturnes and ruins. His wilderness work derives from a lifetime of trekking: local crags, Rockies, Sierra Nevada, Mohave Desert, Alaska, Yukon, Andes and Patagonia. He has been artist in residence in four National Parks– Weir Farm N.H.S., Glacier, Joshua Tree and three times in Death Valley. He’s worked as shipboard artist in north and south Polar Regions, winter Norway and Antarctica. His work is in the collections of Library of Congress, American Alpine Club, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, NYC Department of Education and National Park Service.
