Lucid Dreaming at Fridman Gallery
Fridman Gallery is pleased to present Lucid Dreaming, a selection of work by three painters of one generation working in New York. For the past 10 years (in the throes of a painting scene mostly dominated by abstraction), these artists have developed in-depth bodies of work that ignite the more traditional genres of painting – figuration, still life, landscape or domestic interiors – with a sense of contemporary urgency. Each subverts outright representation by adjusting values of luminosity and scale to varying degrees. As a result, we are faced with a mode of supposed reality closer to a lucid dream state or ‘false awakening’, than to one deriving from observation.
