DESCRIPTION

The Ojai Center of the Arts will, once again, showcase the art of Los Angeles artist Dwora Fried. 

The artist reception is scheduled to coincide with the Ojai Music Festival during the month of June.

Art critic and historian, Peter Frank has said of the work, “Fried’s assemblaged boxes are engaging.

Perhaps because their humor depends on clever and unexpected juxtapositions, the boxes have a rhythm – a sense of timing, really – that resembles good stand-up comedy.

In this context, their political/social/religious subject matter seems only appropriate.“

Entrapment, voyeurism and spectacle are built into working with Fried’s boxes. Their three walls enclose a fixed moment in a room behind glass. “This is a collection of climates, where even the most liberated are confined,” says Fried.
