Zipora Fried moves fluidly between drawing, sculpture, and photography, often synthesizing different types of media in one work, and presenting discreet bodies of work together in unexpected ways. Her work meditates on the relationship between the surface presence and the subconscious, and the potential of the artist’s hand to create and negate shape and form. Process and endurance are fundamental themes of Fried’s practice. Her meticulously crafted sculptures and drawings are the cumulative effort of lengthy, labor-intensive processes, which form a singular “monument.” Lush colored pencil drawings, worked on over a period of months, are at once dense and contemplative, purifying and serene.
