Charley Friedman, Magic Powers, 2010, felt, 90 x 29 x 23 inches
Friedman’s work suggests a light hearted mysticism. In his latest body of work, “Magical Powers”, abstract shapes and color flow from the artist’s hand, as if to suggest a magical element to the act of creating. Friedman renders his figures simply, referencing a child-like state. The drawings, sculptures, and paintings of Charley Friedman demand response, as they each evoke a sense of wonder, awe and suspense.
An MFA graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston/Tufts University, Boston, MA, Charley Friedman has had solo shows at Gallery Diet, White Columns, and the Queens Museum amongst many others. His work has recently been showcased at PS1, The New Museum, and Exit Art. Charley Friedman lives and works in New York.
