Elena del Rivero on John Fraser

A shape resembling a ruler is placed in the middle of two rectangular sheets of paper making a cross. This shape is made mostly of paper, but I also see different textures, some tarlatan and fabric as well. The materials blend together as if by the sheer magic of an architect’s mind; the result is a beautiful, constructed drawing, an exquisite mixed media formalistic collage on Japanese paper. While its strength may be geometry, there is also a refined subtlety of color that draws me closer to the work.
