Fred Tomaselli was born in Santa Monica, California in 1956. He studied Painting and Drawing at California State University, Fullerton. Recent solo exhibitions include Carlier Gebauer, Berlin, 2005; James Cohan Gallery, New York, 2006; Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, 2009 and White Cube, London, 2009. Tomaselli’s meticulous hybrid pictures are made using a dazzling array of materials including paint, pills, insects, photo-collage, leaves and flowers, and explore ideas of Utopia and disorder using objects both real and reproduced. His works draw on such varied influences as Indian miniatures to punk music.
