Sam Friedman

 

Sam Friedman has produced paintings for the greater part of his life that concern themselves primarily with the formal concerns of paint, tools and surfaces as they relate to the scale of the human body; while occasionally touching down to get blessed, tainted - or both - by the non-linear narrative of life. Friedman’s paintings pilot a plane that takes us from the ethereal planes to the earthly plains, on a ride that is neither past or present, but rather timeless, accessible, and transformatively escapist.
