Powerful and provocative, and at times humorous, Dwora Fried’s mixed media captures people, places and emotions under glass — literally. Composed in wooden boxes with glass fronts, the pieces ask unsettling questions about identity, beliefs and space. They recreate imaginary scenes of displacement, entrapment and isolation. The confines of these small, wooden boxes allow the viewer to share in the intimate world of the artist. Fried has been working with boxes for over a decade.
