Erik Frydenborg
American, b. 1977

Erik Frydenborg creates installations, prints, sculptures, and collages that are often compared to a scientist’s anatomical or geological models, obsessively collected and meticulously displayed. He accumulates found objects and molds small abstract forms from plastic, resin, or foam, arranging them with mathematical precision atop sculpted wooden pedestals or incorporating them into 3-D collages. Frydenborg’s installations comprise assemblages of wall works and sculpture that suggest cryptic narratives or images deconstructed into smaller, essential parts. Using a limited palette dominated by shades of gray interspersed with bursts of red or white, and taking academic illustrations as its source, Frydenborg’s work expounds a disturbing logic and banality.
