Adam Friedman is originally from Lake Tahoe, and grew up in North County San Diego. His passion for nature and the great outdoors has manifested itself in his artwork and personal interests. Adam received his MFA from SFAI in 2008, and has exhibited his work across the country. His work has been published in Beautiful Decay Magazine, This is Fly, UNDR RPBLC, BLOUIN ARTINFO, the SF Examiner, amongst many others. Adam paints symbols and tropes revolving around landscape. In his work, rules of perspective, distance, and light are bent. Space can become a solid object and places are folded on top of one another. Millions of years are compacted into a single instant and rocks become fluid. Adam presents a moment that defies human intervention in the landscape, and pays homage to the potential in the inexplicable.
