This exhibition will run from January 26 through May 14, 2023. The Wisconsin Visual Artists Magazine talks about the upcoming show int their most recent magazine. I came upon this and “WOW, that’s my painting!” I hope to see everyone I can at the opening on Saturday January 28 from 2 – 4 pm.
Thank you to my “little bro” Frank Juarez and his continued support and advocacy for the artist. This is my page in the 10th Year Anniversary Artist Directory! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to order a copy and follow Artdose Magazine @artdosemagazine.
I thought this would be impossible. The idea of a space to sell online? Not through WordPress. However… it seems to have worked. Now… with the holiday season upon us – let us see how this works. Please click HERE or the fjKorb Sales pull down menu above. Thanks!

When I have time to sit, and all the other stuff I have to do is done, I like to sit and observe the people around me. Family is sometimes fun… but more often the strangers are more fun. The best part of the process is photographing the drawings and then giving the finished work to my models. The thank you’s are great.
The development of new ideas is always in the works. While the ideas and the imagery are easily recognizable (hopefully) the works continue to challenge how I go about the making and building of the ground. These works were quite the challenge and the saw was put to use a lot as I developed the ideas and challenging approach to the making of the canvases? Thankfully, until a museum decides to X-Ray the works, the construction is hidden behind my panels. Enjoy!
Here are links to my process photos of each work:
The summer has been positive in the studio as the grounds have moved away from the square and in some cases away from the straight edge. These are obviously not a new invention for the world of the arts but for a novice woodworker (if I can even call myself that) this is a new approach (the curved ones especially). All of the works are available (at the writing of this) so please contact me if you are interested. Enjoy!
Saturday made my (and EXPO Chicago‘s) return to Navy Pier. It has been a long time and the day was well spent. Seeing artworks, galleries, artists, and gallerists from around the world was fulfilling (and really visually exhausting). It was fantastic to run into a friend Frank Juarez and then an Instagram celebrity and artist more-so in her own right Mallory Shotwell (follow them both) as I worked my way through almost every booth. Enjoy the images and make sure you plan two days next year for EXPO Chicago.
When one has a small group but a large voice the changes that can take place in society can be huge.
Gallup’s latest update on U.S. abortion attitudes finds 58% of Americans opposed to overturning the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, while 32% are in favor. Since 1989, between 52% and 66% of U.S. adults have wanted to maintain the landmark abortion decision. Today’s support roughly matches the average over that three-decade period. – Lydia Saad: June 19, 2021https://news.gallup.com/poll/350804/americans-opposed-overturning-roe-wade.aspx
The past number of months have been dedicated in the studio in working on a series of six paintings / prints that address the necessity of the the visualization of the support for a woman’s constitutional and SCOTUS supported right to reproductive choice. While the march on Washington was quite a while ago in the history of protests and marches, the image and symbolism of the hat still stand strong.
Thank you Abby Korb for the creation of the pink hat. This will get its own frame and artwork (a little down the road).
This work began as a monochromatic work in blue (go figure) weeks ago. And then Russia waged war on Ukraine. While I can’t do a whole lot to help the fight, this piece offers what I can do to help. $1000 is the asking price and all proceeds will go to a not for profit that is helping the people of Ukraine. I’ll frame it. The shipping costs and the sales tax will be added to the cost after it is sold (and you and I can talk about that when you purchase the work).
HERE are the progress images of the work from start to finish.
I don’t add much to the posts, so here are a few images to enjoy. I’ve also cleaned my studio! Please visit the years in the above pull down menu to see more. Please contact me to purchase them. Follow me on Instagram @fjkorb and Twitter (the same). Thanks. New works coming soon!
