Dwora Fried


Fried’s reliance on figurines, on dolls, puppets, and other miniaturizations, so often arrayed in house-like boxes, underscores both the narrative thrust of her work and the child’s vantage it embodies. The narratives themselves, however, are freighted with dread and longing; an anxious and often heavy spirit pervades these assemblages, speaking of a childhood whose insouciance has been swallowed by gloom and an adult desire to return to childhood to uncover the missing innocence.
