DESCRIPTION

In Barbara Friedman’s new paintings, alpine traumas exist as little bubbles of figuration within color-field abstractions. Hence the show’s title Alpträume, German for “nightmares.” Influenced by visual and literary art of the past, the haunting aspect of these paintings draws upon the eerie loneliness of the alps, both compelling and solemn.
