Louis Buhl & Co. is excited to announce our edition with SAM FRIEDMAN titled Beach Print 1. Sam Friedman has become known for moving between representational and abstract depictions with seeming ease and spontaneity. This edition draws inspiration from a pivotal moment after an experience the artist had walking towards the sunset during an oncoming storm at Rockaway Beach. This personal encounter of induced visual clarity manifested a phenomenon where he saw in his mind's eye fully realized landscapes in vivid colors. He immediately got to work on his 'beach paintings' - which started as works on paper - and have become his hallmark.
"For this piece, the printers took a pre-existing painting of mine and created a print of it. First, they created a digital file of the elements in the image, as flat individual layers, then I selected colors that were reflective of the original. The original painting is from my beach series, that dates back to 2008." - Sam Friedman
