Dwora Fried is an assemblage artist creating mixed media tableaux in wooden boxes. She populates them with miniature vintage furniture, dolls, toys and fabrics from the 50s, adding photographs, plastic, wood, metal and paint.

Her small rooms evoke what it was like to grow up as an outsider in postwar Vienna: being Jewish, lesbian and a child of Holocaust survivors, she learned to see everything through the prism of loss, danger and secrecy. “I inherited a sense of isolation, displacement and an appreciation for the surreal.”

She has had solo shows in London, England; Venice, Italy at the Museo Ebraico; Vienna, Austria and Los Angeles, California.
Her art is in the permanent collection of Austria’s MUSA Museum.

Fried has also exhibited in Chicago’s Elmhurst Art Museum, Grafiska Sällskapet in Stockholm, Sweden,San Francisco’s Arc Gallery and Orange County Center for the Arts, Gallery 825/LAAA, Bg Gallery, Walter Maciel Gallery, Art Share LA, Fullerton College Art Gallery and the Annenberg CBH Gallery.
Most recently her work was shown at Launch LA/Korean Cultural Center, Irvine Fine Arts and the newly opened MASH Gallery in downtown Los Angeles.
