Todd Fry is a sculptor living and working in York, PA. Born in 1971, Todd first expressed his artistic talents as a musician. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts before moving to New York to pursue a career in the music recording industry. In addition to music, Todd also discovered he had a gift of storytelling through film and video. Building on his music background, he produced award winning documentaries for local NBC and PBS affiliates and launched a successful nationally syndicated series for NBC Entertainment. After four years traveling the world filming wildlife, Todd founded his own production company, Fryfilms, LLC. Fifteen years in television earned Todd numerous awards including seven Emmys. All along the way, Todd was teaching himself to paint and sculpt, which has brought him to the next chapter in his artistic life, a sculptor. Todd combines wood, stone and steel in his sculptures to explore the complex dualism of human nature in his ongoing quest to define what it means to be alive. In addition to his professional accomplishments, Todd is also a Master Falconer and an avid student of Aikido and Zen.
"The subconscious mind is a very mysterious place. It is vast and complex, and filled with very dark things. But shine the light of understanding into that darkness and you will illuminate a treasure beyond imagination. At times the difference between light and dark may be difficult to discern; but is that really such a bad thing? The labels we attach to our thoughts and emotions only serve to disorient us with a duality of consciousness. There can be no light without dark; success without failure; life without death. We all know this, and yet we insist that happiness and pleasure should permanently replace pain and suffering. There is pain in beauty and beauty in pain; nothing lasts forever but that is exactly what makes it precious. I combine wood, stone and steel to explore the complex duality of human nature in my quest to define what it means to be human. I believe that what a person sees when viewing abstract art is really just a reflection of something within themselves and all interpretations are equally valid. It is my goal to create art that shines light into the subconscious of every viewer who sees it."
