An abstract expressionist painter, Sam Provenzano lives in San Francisco (2003) and is known for his Wedge Series, derived from the push-pull theories of Hans Hofmann and based on the exploration of form and color. His work can be described as abstract figurative, and his paintings have components of recognizable objects combined with abstraction.
