Texture and color smash together in paintings by Sam Friedman

The New York native and resident, Sam Friedman, paints in a seemingly loose but simultaneously exact manner, creating organic images built up of different fields of color and pattern. These designs can be perceived as representations of the natural world, such as topographical lines and textures reminiscent of waves, bubbles, and grasses. Friedman creates these works of art in what he refers to as “the language of painting”, without ever articulating concept into words before making a painting. He calls this to attention when he describes his artwork saying that he is, “not quite bilingual enough yet to translate.” While working on one piece he oftentimes discovers the themes he wants to experiment with in the next painting, never running out of ideas, just flowing from one painting to the next. Look through his awesome artwork below!
