Sarajo Frieden

I work from a studio in Los Angeles that borders Thai Town, Little Armenia and Koreatown, with Guatemalan and Salvadoran bakeries nearby. The cacophony of hand-painted signs in a variety of languages serves as both inspiration and daily reminder that the ordinary is often extraordinary and nothing is what it seems. A host of disparate vocabularies from the worlds of fine, folk and decorative art, including Persian miniatures, Shaker trance drawings, Japanese ukiyo-e, and my Hungarian great aunt’s embroidery, can be found wandering through my images. Using open-ended narratives, folk tales, abstraction and the juxtaposition of discordant images, I try to give form to the human experience as I see it. My work has been exhibited in galleries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, North Carolina, Minnesota, New York, Rome, Venice, Naples and Australia.
