Statement

Inspired by the 18th century English artist & poet William Blake, Frederick Loomis experienced a vision of computers in a human form superseding 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 was given a voluntary early-out package from Verizon to start working on this project and 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 his 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 extensive 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 anonymously under the name of Edward Mathew Taylor.
