"Dwora Fried Review On The Mountain" by Mat Gleason

BOXART, a new book by Dwora Fried with an introduction by Mat Gleason, is available on Amazon.com

Dwora Fried is an assemblage artist creating mixed media tableaux in various sized 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.”

Fried has exhibited in London, England; Venice, Italy; Vienna, Austria and the United States

Her art is in the permanent collection of Austria’s MUSA Wien Museum.

Her work has been reviewed in LA Times, Huffpost, LA Magazine, Coagula Curatorial, Art and Cake, Artillery Magazine, Artwork LA. and the Jewish Journal.
