Tomorrow night (February 11th) in Detroit, Library Street Collective will be presenting new work from Sam Friedman in a show entitled LOVE SONGS. Continuing his deconstruction of natural landscapes, the New York-based artist has prepared a series of canvases as well as over 30 paintings on paper that revisit his earlier exploration of beach scenes and sunsets. The two different sets of works will allow for a nice contrast in techniques as the canvases use a single type of paint and a freehand technique, while the pieces on paper utilize a layering of spray paint, masking, and silkscreen.
