About

MaDora Frey’s experiential sculptures combine drawings, light, and reflective surfaces on multi-dimensional structures. Citing the landscapes of the frenetic city where she currently lives and her rural Southern roots as points of departure, Frey generates optically mysterious, luminous geographies. The tension of resolving her relationships with disparate environments dissolves into wonderment – as if by some alchemical process. Desire for both creates an “in-between” place or third space. This third space is occupied by the often universally felt sense of inhabiting two places at once, without quite feeling present in either. Frey finds contradictory materials and visual languages particularly alluring, such as mirrored surfaces. Mythically thought to offer portals to other worlds or to reveal the soul, reflective surfaces are perhaps even more omnipresent in the current day as façades of contemporary skyscrapers. Light carries spiritual associations like transcendence and the after-life, but also illuminates factories, industrial spaces. Drawings present in the work, handmade with liquid graphite might easily be mistaken for computer-generated images. With careful attention to forms and material choices, Frey constructs sculptures that read as oracles, as if they are communicating something to the viewer. The works literally and metaphorically reflect place and viewer, shifting and changing in real time as people and light around them move. Illusion of edge, shadow and light overlap and disrupt a sense of recognizable space, birthing the third space. Through her work, Frey invites us to revise our ideas of “location” and “place”. Because much of our lives exist in our minds, a dynamic and shifting space, Frey’s work welcomes viewers to locate themselves by mapping emotional connections instead of relying on GPS to determine personal coordinates.
