Stuart Shedletsky was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1944. He studied at the Parsons School of Design and the University of New Mexico before receiving his M.F.A. from Yale University. He spent many years teaching drawing and paintingat Parsons School of Design.
Shedletsky’s early work consisted of disciplined yet sensual geometric paintings.
In comparison, the paintings of his later years are spontaneous and painterly,
charged with a symbolic figuration.
