Space 1026 presents BEACH, a solo exhibition by Brooklyn-based painter Sam Friedman. In BEACH, Friedman invokes other worldly ocean side landscapes in grand scale with the first major exhibition of his beautiful and vibrant Beach Painting series. Inspired by his experience along a walk on the beach towards a sun setting into the ocean, Friedman began production of his Beach Paintings during the summer of 2008. Friedman’s paintings are a colorful synesthetic storm of memories and painterly vignettes formed from the tactile edge of the perceived world. The exhibition showcases several samples from his five year long exploration into the light, shape, color, and language of his 2008 experience and features two paintings that span ten feet high and reach nearly twenty feet long.
