Welcome to Joseph Daniel Fiedler Art - Painting and Illustration. As an award-winning independent freelance artist-illustrator since 1973, Joseph Daniel Fiedler [Scaryjoey] has produced art and illustrations that have appeared in numerous publications and exhibitions. Fiedler has illustrated children's books, and received a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators of New York. Many leading professional Journals and organizations have recognized Fiedler's paintings and illustrations. Fiedler's personal paintings have been exhibited at galleries in Germany, Japan and throughout the United States. As a pedagogue, Fiedler has taught painting and illustration at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA and at the College for Creative Studies, Detroit, MI. Fiedler's use of material and imagery make his art very traditional but he prefers to think of it as Neo-traditional. Casual, sketchy drawing, deliberate surface defacement, sanding, scratching, layering and collage put the image into a kind of frame, an historical reference. What he does is create a simulacrum of something that he's seen before, reproduced somewhere, buried under layers of yellowed varnish and partially torn. Not surprisingly, the suggested retro look and feel of generic, vernacular art of the late 1940's and '50's relates to the time in which Fiedler grew up. Fiedler has lived in Pittsburgh, PA, Tokyo, Japan, Taos, New Mexico, Detroit, MI and now resides in Nevada City, CA.
