    Sifting through found objects, natural and political history, religious iconography and suburban kitsch as source materials, Leslee Fraser creates small-scale ceramic figure assemblages that draw the viewer in for a closer look.

To get up close and personal with Fraser’s tiny bricolage is to be reminded that sometimes the cutest fragments of life’s detritus can pack the darkest punchlines.
