Video Interview with Barbara Friedman on French Television
The Brooklyn Days Blog (scroll down to April 25th)
"...a beautiful painter, very subtle and understated."
"Barbara Friedman’s semiabstract paintings, on view at The Ober Gallery in Kent, Connecticut, are packed with movement and emotion, though they are thoroughly unsentimental…her work portrays the constant tension between having – and not having.
In 'Garden of the Finzi-Continis II,' a reference to the novel (and movie) about doomed upper-class Italian Jews in WWII, a bright green tennis court is lined in hot pink: preppie colors. But the court isn’t whole; it’s a half court. And there are no players …Beyond the court is a background of dark trees with touches of red; they suggest smoldering embers. In 'Disappearing Bus,' we see the back end of a yellow school bus taking off into a hazy, murky somewhere else. It’s an everyday moment loaded with fear, potential loss."
