I started making black and
white monotypes several years ago as a way of working on new images for
paintings. They have evolved into finished works of their own. While some images are successful in black and white, others
beckon to be expressed in color, and those have become paintings. I have
grouped the color with black and white for this exhibition.
“Here we see
that even contained works of art featuring strong subject matter
hold seemingly infinite possibilities.
Friedman plays on this truth by inviting the observer to
complete a composition that is continually in flux.
He accomplishes his goal with allegorical imagery that
draws the viewer right inside the picture”.
