“The Lumpy Paintings series plays with the dichotomy of transforming the base substance of recycled junk mail into the highfalutin form of a painting, posing simple and quirky conclusions of what paper can be and what painting can be.” — Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao

About the Artist

7b86d4fd c000 42d3 bbeb 12e234347a8d

Adam Frezza (b. 1977) and Terri Chiao (b. 1981) are based in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The collaborative duo’s work explores everyday life and domestic play through sculptures, installations, collages, and paintings. Inspired by unusual and unique surfaces, they embrace vibrant color palettes and surreal elements. Their projects can be characterized as existing at the “intersection of imagination and the natural world.” Frezza and Chiao have been collaborating since 2011.
