CURRENT ARTISTS

BAILEE FRALICK

ARTIST BIO

After sitting through her first Art History class at The University of South Carolina, Fralick was instantly captured by the powerful way that art can stir the imagination and tell an intricate story. Since graduating, Fralick has become a mixed media collage artist who constructs stories in complex layers of paper, found materials and imagery. When she isn't forging relationships between colors and textures through her art, Fralick enjoys applying her keen eye to film photography, tending to her backyard garden and continually searching for the best cocktail that Columbia has to offer. 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

As someone who craves structure and predictability, nothing has been more satisfying than creating tension out of opposites. Old and new, straight and torn, bright and dark. These juxtapositions often reflect the abrupt truth of the lives we live and the world we have the opportunity to experience.

 

My work is an examination of just that, discerning unexpected beauty in moments of everyday tension.
