Embodied Construct

Fred Holland

Fred Holland’s drawings, prints and sculpture transform discarded materials into meditations on healing, superstition and protection. His work references black folk art and uses repetitive, labor-intensive arts to create visual affirmations of black history and identity. Embodied Construct includes a series of prints made from onions and medicinal herbs, thousands of black-eyed peas assembled in a wall drawing, and a floor-to-ceiling column of copper pennies.
