Tom Fruin




Tom Fruin contrasts the illicit thrills of drugs with the quilt as a symbol of wholesome Americana, security, and warmth. Eschewing for the most part bad-ass posturing and sentimentality, he documents the way his anonymous neighbors seek the rush or the relief of intoxication as they try to escape this life for a while and maybe tempt self-destruction. What makes his best pieces work is his mix of dazzling composition, sociological inquiry, and obsessive craftsmanship in rebellion against our increasingly plastic world.
