John Fraser: EcruPost an Event »

John Fraser: Ecru John Fraser, (Measured) Four-Part Horizon, 2016, graphite, acrylic, graphite wash, mixed media collage on four panels, wall shelf construction, found object mounted to wood, 25.5 x 38 x 5.5”

John Fraser’s practice is built on the idea that making art and looking at art are both slow and considered processes that reward the individual with unexpected visual discoveries. While at first glance his minimalist work appears abstract, each piece is in fact created from, and responds to, found materials and objects that have histories of their own. Fraser incorporates objects like vintage tools (old rulers, T-squares, measuring devices) and discarded books (including their covers, spines and end papers), and when recombined in his work these often-underappreciated materials have a strong, quiet presence. The gallery is open Thursday through Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm, by appointment.
