Moti Hasson Gallery presents Zipora Fried, an exhibition of drawings, sculpture and video. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. Architectural and intimate, weighty and delicate, Israeli-born, New York-based Zipora Fried’s works evidence the hand as a primary vehicle for creation as well as the potential instrument for its negation. Fried’s meticulous drawings and sculptures carry sumptuous gestures of simplicity and a hidden desire for flamboyance. A singular process is evident in all of Fried’s work, in which the potential of familiar forms is intensified. Each object is fundamentally altered through a simple gesture, often to excessive extremes.
