Local Hyde Park collectors Steve and Peyton Gianfilippo took to Art Basel in Miami last year and came home with a bold new abstract work by New York artist Sam Freidman. The collectors were drawn almost instantly to the painting’s vibrant color palette and commanding wall presence. Influences to Freidman’s art range from the great American Abstract Expressionists to the rippling lines of a ‘Karesansui’ (Japanese Zen Garden). His abstract works are composed of waves of gradient color that give perspectives of infinite depth and abstract forms that are seemingly boundless, even by the canvas. Untitled, seen from the owner’s Hyde Park window, is known to stop traffic around the neighborhood.
