Sam Friedman takes us on a trip in Sitting Pretty, his first West Coast solo show at Chandran Gallery in San Francisco opening on September 2 and running through October 14, 2016.

The artist—who splits his time between studios in Brooklyn and Hudson Valley, New York—continues his exploration of amplified compositions and dichotomies that come together as abstract portals to otherworldly landscapes. The new paintings in Sitting Pretty are solely dedicated to form and come together in an intuitive construction. The show is comprised of 16 new works, many of which will be mural-scale. The exhibition will be on view September 02 - October 14 with an opening reception on Friday, September 2 from 7 - 9pm with the artist in attendance.
