A.J. Fries
Child's Play



Exhibition:
Friday, October 19, 2018-Saturday, November 17, 2018


Artist's Statement:

“Child’s Play” not only celebrates the toys of our childhood but pairs those feelings of nostalgia within a deeper context. The viewer experiences the fondness, the forgotten memory, these objects once held and simultaneously faces the complex constructs these images represent. This ongoing series creates a play between what was familiar, joyful, and innocent from our childhood with the challenging social commentaries that come with adulthood and maturity.
