Historical Context:
"Everything that I read, see, feel, and experience influences the outcome of my work. My intent is to create images that are unique and reflect my attraction to those things which inspire, but are often times difficult to explain. Experimenting with different materials has allowed me to create images that take on a life of their own. Pools of paint and polyurethane, and layers of tar and plastic create colors and textures that are simultaneously ugly, shinny, beautiful, strange and infectious. I don't set out to paint a particular subject matter. It is important to me to find clarity through intuition and experimentation." -Nuel Friend
