"The symbols and iconography belong to me as much as anyone else. They are mine to do with as I see fit."

Paul Fryer's striking Art pieces engage an array of occult and religious symbology with modern scientific revelations.The Artist's most successful works focus on morality, discord, science and religion and just how we interact with these rather vast conflicted topics. Ever striking as they are modern - Fryer's installations create an immediate strong visual reaction. His famously documented Morning Star installation in The former Holy Trinity Church depicts a debilitated Lucifer struggling and caught within telegraph wires. The relationship of the wax sculpture to the ornate church setting (and its foremost adversary) is enthralling. His Pieta series directly challenges the viewer to see the Christian symbol of suffering and atonement executed in a electric chair. Fryer has the ability to challenge us with intertwining symbols that evoke not only deep thought but visceral emotion.

Below we have featured some of our favorite works by the Artist.
