Warner Friedman, American (1935 - )

Warner Friedman
Warner Friedman incorporates architectural forms into his canvases through which serene landscapes and seascapes are viewed. Sometimes shaped, these canvases tease the eye into believing in Friedman’s ‘new reality’. Separating illusion from reality becomes a chore when confronted by his masterful use of materials and attention to detail.
