The UC Davis Craft Center Gallery presents “Ink + Paper,” the solo exhibition of Daniel Friedman, a senior majoring in genetics, which will run through June 6.
The exhibit will feature works of two-dimensional projections of n-dimensional spatial-temporal ideas, concepts, riddles or paradoxes. The drawings were produced in fascination of patterns. Each drawing is done by hand, with no tools or external references. They take between five and 40 hours to complete.
Friedman works in black and white because it stands in contrast to the daily kaleidoscopic world. Similar to how a computer draws curved lines from 0’s and 1’s, he seeks to create flow, tension, friction and continuity with art that can be functionally reduced to on/off pixels. His art pieces serve as catalyst to abstract thought, scientific understanding and transpersonal connection.
