Project Description

Warner Friedman’s paintings of landscapes as viewed through open windows or architectural elements appear as portals to the outdoors while providing a unique approach to working with perceived three dimensional perspective. With a career spanning over 60 years and stylistic roots in the New York School of Abstract Expressionism, Friedman’s insight comes to us firsthand and unfiltered. He studied at Pratt and Cooper Union and took part in the Cedar Street Tavern scene, the unofficial meeting place for the New York School in the 1950s, while his work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States, most notably at the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford, CT; Corcoran Gallery in Washington DC and the Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton Art Museums in Florida.
