Artist Statement
Frederick Loomis, inspired by the 18th century British artist & poet William Blake, experienced at an early age an artistic vision of computers in a human form succeeding humanity as the next stage of human evolution.  For the past 40 years he has actively searched for ways to successfully articulate this.  After a 25-year career in telecommunications technology sales and marketing, he took a voluntary early-out package from Verizon to obtain a graduate Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree in Drawing at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, which he received between 2002-and-2004.  He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at Boston University in 1972 and a Diploma in Fine Arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, in 1974.  He is married and has three children from a previous marriage and two step children from his current marriage.  During the past 40 years, he has been engaged in a personal, experiential inquiry into the world’s revealed religions and, over the past 23 years, he has developed an artistic portfolio of pencil drawings and several written manuscripts that will eventually become The Third Testament: The Genesis Story of the Coming Race of Human Computers – seven prophetic books and a narrative storyline, to be published under the anonymous name of Edward Mathew Taylor.
