[from the pressrelease]
Zipora Fried’s series of pencil drawings drew inspiration from the vivid flora and fauna of Lamu Island. Hues of blue, green and gold meld into one another, recalling the artist’s own visions of Lamu Island, of “sky and mud colored lizards, soft-toned cicada shells, sunsets echoing exploding worlds […] the yearning breath of the tide syncopating melodically with the infinite characteristics of the sand.” Composed of meticulously patterned lines, the act of drawing each individual stroke mediates a delicate balance between the composure of ritual and the inconsistency in reiteration. Each mark thus becomes subsumed within a larger color field, as the rational functionality of line and form are deconstructed and transformed into a unique sensorial experience.
