Through June 21
The artist's forth exhibition with the gallery has been well reviewed, and the coverage in Collector Daily by Richard B. Woodward offered a particularly nice reflection on the artist's work and its context. Woodward offers that Frydlender has succeeded in making images that are monumental in terms of their production-time and historical relevance. They are critical in social-political terms as well as in relation to the history of the photographic media.
The Yaffo-Tel Aviv
images reveal a single street corner- the view from the artist's studio- over 16 years. The images reflect a merging of two cities into one and the drama that unfolds and economical shifts that happen within the time it took for the cities to unite. Some of the images evolved over days, months, even years and incorporate up to 75 images. Though Frydlender moves, combines, and relocates figures and other elements there still is an underlying framing of truth that amounts. These images reveal layers of mark and the become convincing as moments we want to linger in and read with greater care and attention. As much as they solidify an artist's approved truth they pose challenge to the tradition in photography established by Henry Fox Talbot, who invented the media to "describe an array of objects honestly and simultaneously."
