Louis Buhl & Co. is excited to release this monoprint series with artist Sam Friedman. A pivotal moment in the artist’s work stems from his experience of walking towards the sunset during an oncoming storm. This personal encounter of induced visual clarity prompted the artist to create his ‘beach paintings’, which have become a hallmark of his work. This monoprint series aptly reflects Friedman’s larger body of work, and continues to demonstrate the ability to move between representation and abstraction. 

The series of hand-pulled screen printed monoprints on mohawk superfine ultrawhite 160lb paper are each numbered and signed by the artist. Each work is a unique monoprint and will reflect that it is 1/1. 

"For this monoprint series, we made sure to avoid any digitizing or using a computer altogether. Instead, I painted elements directly onto sheets of acetate, with black acrylic paint. These acetates were used to burn the screens. From there, I worked one on one with the printers. We built each composition up layer by layer, with no preconceived plans for color or composition, decisions which varied from one piece to the next. It was the most painting like experience that I have ever had while printing." - Sam Friedman
