      FOUND:RE December exhibit explores peoples’ everyday interactions through art
      Man + Man opens December 1


      FOUND:RE Phoenix, located at 1100 North Central Avenue, introduces its December exhibit, Man + Man. Opening Dec. 1 and running through January, the exhibit is the final component to artist Aileen Frick’s three-part series.
      Man + Man follows Man + Made and Man + Nature, which explored peoples’ interactions with public art and with nature. The latest exhibit dives into peoples’ relationships with themselves and with each other.
      Frick found her passion for collage in 2008 after taking an art class for fun. She is inspired by her surroundings every day; she said she often finds herself taking photos of anything that catches her eye. Frick’s photographs focus on people going about their everyday lives, from chatting outside a coffee shop, to crossing the street, to using their phones.
      The photos are just the first step; Frick then creates a sketch based on the photo and searches through magazines looking for a particular color, pattern or other form of imagery that she wants to see within the piece. Finally, she glues the magazine clippings down and paints over them with oil. From afar, the piece looks like one photograph. As the viewer approaches, the various components become clear.
      According to Frick, the exhibit serves to give guests a “wider view of the world.”
      “I want them to know that people are good,” she said, “Our communities and people we surround ourselves with are more important than what’s on the news.”
      Frick believes it is important for the Phoenix community to embrace local artists, just as FOUND:RE Phoenix does.
      “It’s the pulse of what’s living right within the city,” she said, “Artists act as mirrors—they can give you a reflection of what’s going on in the area.”
      Man + Man opens Dec. 1 with an artist reception beginning at 6 p.m. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and by checking availability at the front desk on weekends.
