“Sick Leave” By Jake Fried

Watching Boston-based Jake Fried‘s Sick Leave feels like discovering the animation of an indigenous tribe in some faraway land. The exciting stream-of-conscious flow is a constant surprise, mixing Fried’s personal symbolism with recognizable imagery, like a burning house and a can of soda. The visceral quality of the artwork is enhanced by the use of raw materials like ink and white-out.
