Statement

 

Adam Frezza (USA, 1977) is a multi-disciplinary artist working in paint, collage, photography, sculpture, and installation.  His work plays with the idea of integrating physical and ethereal substance.  He focuses on loopholes in science, religion, and reality to reveal new potentials for our experienced actuality.  Through corporeal and visual means Frezza illuminates invisible forces that cosmically forge certain tangible substances into our contemporary society; also, highlighting how these seemingly elemental substances have endured a turbulent, biased, and manufactured history.

He was recently included in exhibitions at The Lower East Side Printshop in Manhattan, Irvine Contemporary in Washington, DC, and The Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art.  His work was selected for the 2008 Northeast Region publication of New American Paintings.  A selection of Frezza's recent drawings can also be seen at the Drawing Center's Online Viewing Program.
