Jorge Fick (b. 1932, Detroit, MI, d. 2004, Santa Fe, NM) was a master of color and composition who created a painting syntax all his own. One of the few artists to receive a degree from Black Mountain College, Fick studied with the artists at the forefront of contemporary American Art including John Chamberlain, who he eventually shared a studio with. After graduating in 1955, Fick moved to New York and was introduced to Abstract Expressionism by its foremost practitioners. Soon after, Fick settled in New Mexico where he developed his sophisticated graphic and often humorous style.
