Jonathan Trayte: Fruiting Habits


Friedman Benda will present the gallery’s first collaboration with London-based artist JONATHAN TRAYTE. This exhibition marks Trayte’s first solo exhibition in the US.

For this project Trayte assembles a surreal and psychologically provocative landscape, with living, sleeping and eating quarters. This fantasy world is instantly appealing, but also intentionally strange, and laced with mordant wit. The pieces form a quirky and characterful family of misfits. "The work that I tend to make comes together all at once, like a cast of characters,” says Trayte. “There's always some weird older brother, the 'black sheep,' that doesn't quite fit."
