Joe Fyfe is a painter and art critic, based in New York City.

His paintings are deceptively simple. Using acrylic paint on primed burlap and jute, he limits his palette to a few colors in each work.

His works have been exhibited in places as diverse as New York City, Philadelphia, Paris and Hanoi.

He was awarded a 2002 Adolph & Esther Gottlieb Foundation grant, and has received a Fullbright Fellowship, as well as fellowships from the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, Yaddo and MacDowell colonies.
