John Fraser’s formal approach is dominated by linear compositions and systems of classification and ordering. His geometrical forms and shapes can be seen as metaphors for looking, as through windows and doors. 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's latest exhibition, Ecru, will be on view at Traywick Contemporary January 29 through March 25, 2017.
