Disguised, faded, bruised and torn. Chopped, stacked and waiting for purpose. Clinton Freidman saw past the seemingly lifeless plant formations and saw an intrinsic beauty in their healing and life giving sacrifice. Capturing the aloe plant and other various medicinal herbs as they cling to life after being torn from the soil, Freidman’s works celebrates life at its most bold, graphic, individual, absolute and honest form.
