|Roberta Friedman: "Escape"|
Friedman's watercolor and wax enhanced collages transform papers and natural elements into embedded layered paintings that explore and celebrate the wondrous unpredictability of water-based media infused with the intense colors of wax and oil based pigments. Friedman's bias remains her unending fascination with the natural layering of the landscape—its grandeur and its serenity—and her continued quest to re-imagine those layers, through textures, light and color. She has introduced both hot and cold wax techniques into her layering process.
