“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

File 82711

Adam Frezza (b. 1977) and Terri Chiao (b. 1981) are a collaborative artist duo based in Brooklyn, NY. Heavily invested in the spirit of play and experimentation, Adam and Terri create fantastical works of art that incorporate unusual textures and unexpected forms. Humor, color and pattern intersect to immerse the viewer in the artists’ world of wonderment.
