Neal Fryett presents new photographic, sculptural, and video work in the Kirkland Arts Center Gallery’s first exhibition of 2012. The tangram, a dissection puzzle comprised of seven parts, serves as the foundation for Fryett’s images—basic geometric shapes that when arranged and rearranged become a study in still life, balance, and history. The grains of wood that seem to appear and disappear in each photograph give life to the otherwise inanimate objects. Fryett continuously challenges viewers to look at everyday life in new and unexpected ways.
Contained looks at the containers in our lives and examines the ways that objects shape us, and how we use them to ground our ideas and memories.
