Dwora Fried

Biography

“To spend time with Dwora Fried's artworks is to gain insight into the process and content of memory. Accessing memory is often a fraught with difficulty (due to the landmines of repression and denial.) But because most of Fried's boxes are miniatures, we seem to have power over their content.”

- Betty Brown, Art Historian, Author, Critic, Curator

Born in Vienna, Austria
Tel Aviv University, Israel
Avni School of Fine Arts, Israel
Residing in Los Angeles since 1978
