Biography: Detroit native Jorge Fick attended Cass Technical School, the Art School of the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts, the Mexican Art School in Guadalajara, Mexico and Black Mountain College in Asheville, NC, where he earned a BFA. His work was heavily influenced by his mentor Franz Kline, who introduced him to Abstract Expressionism, with whom he shared a studio in New York. In 1958, Fick moved to Santa Fe, NM where he and his wife, a ceramic artist, were active in the art community. He exhibited widely throughout the 1960s in American galleries and museums. His work is part of several permanent collections, such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe; the Phoenix Art Museum; and Smith College Museum of Art, as well as the Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center.
