Dianna Frid’s sculptures, installations, artist’s books, and mixed media work explore the intersection of text and textile, matter and subject matter. Richard Rezac has created thought-provoking abstract object-sculptures since the 1980s. This book, the catalog for a recent exhibition at the DePaul Art Museum, brings together works by both of these Chicago-based artists. In doing so, Dianna Frid + Richard Rezac: Split Complementary shines a light on their shared sensibilities—a rigorous yet poetic approach that revels in the nuances of color, surface, and material.

Frid’s and Rezac’s works appear here accompanied by rare books from DePaul University’s John T. Richardson Library and a variety of objects from the DePaul Art Museum’s permanent collection. The juxtaposition of objects made by artists, craftspeople, and bookbinders generates affinities that broaden how we see and understand all of the work assembled in these pages. Complementing each other formally, these pieces offer opportunities to find familiar patterns in unfamiliar forms and surprising connections between dissimilar objects.
