In the basement of his cozy Portland home, Adam Friedman explores the dynamics between nature and technology through a tireless and unique creative process. The area is modest but spacious and it spills into the storage and laundry facilities where most of the canvas prepping (stretching, building frames, etc.) takes place. When walking into the main studio room, I notice paint buckets gathered on the floor with a few being used as an impromptu easel. A bookshelf holds an assortment of spray cans, reference books, and other painter supplies such as tape and brushes. But of course, what's most interesting by far part are the many walls displaying Adam's latest collection of work: 'Avalanche'.
