New Work by Los Angeles Native Artist Laurie Frick at Edward Cella Art + Architecture
Laurie Frick, The Language of Sleep, 2010. Wood, pigments and adhesives, 72 x 96 x 2 in. (182.88 x 243.84 x 5.08 cm)
LOS ANGELES, CA.- Edward Cella Art + Architecture presents a solo exhibition of new work by Los Angeles native artist Laurie Frick. Entitled Sleep Patterns, each of Frick’s wall-based works and a site specific installation, represent the resonant rhythms of the neural paths of the human mind. Using scientific tools to measure these, Frick desires to visually present our biological nature though a unique language of pattern. This is Frick’s debut exhibit with Edward Cella Art + Architecture, as well as her first on the West Coast.

Frick’s recent works are conceived from five years of daily activity charts captured in ten minute intervals over twenty-four hours from a colleague’s self quantified sleep patterns, along with her own nightly EEG sleep data collected over a period of one hundred nights. Using these data streams, Frick looks for inherently familiar proportions found in each, and it is through these common patterns that Frick begins to represent human time as fragments. Based in neuroscience, each piece is an experiment with the way the mind interprets and processes familiar daily experiences.

Recording and mirroring these natural patterns found in human waking and sleeping activities, Frick constructs three dimensional sculpture-like works and installations. Comprised of reclaimed materials like antique boxes and distressed woods,Frick composes pictorial panels assembled in a parquetry-like fashion. Like scientific experiments in progress, these immersive wall based artworks record and document the proportions of the mind through a vocabulary of color, textures, light and shadow. Each work tempts the viewer to decode the underlying relationships and rhythms that physically and visually enhance our understanding of these complex operations that are the core of human existence and experience.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Frick now resides in Austin, TX and part-time in New York City. She completed an MFA from the New York Studio School in 2007. Formerly an executive in high- technology, she also holds an MBA from the University of Southern California. She has been awarded fellowships and residencies at Yaddo, The Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, The American Academy in Rome, McColl Center for Visual Art, Djerassi and the Headlands Center for the Arts. She has exhibited at the Robert Steele Gallery in New York, and serves as Associate Publisher for
