Alex Friedman’s Statement
My recent work draws inspiration from the landscapes around me: the ocean, the eroded land formations and the stark reminders of the recent drought. In these places I find elements that work their way into my designs inspired by shape, shadow, line and, almost always, color that drives my tapestry inspirations.
