ADAM CURRY: 2012
Solo exhibition of Adam's mixed media urban landscape paintings.
Adam’s art practice has evolved over decades from a fascination with modern film narrative processes and classical painting techniques. His more recent works use modern forms of media: digital photography, the world wide web, as source materials (the sketch), having them reproduced electronically (the cartoon), and then applying traditional (Dammar Varnish) layered oil painting techniques to create optical effects. Adam’s work references the past while challenging our notions of modern painting.
Through a series of works Adam moves the viewer on a cinematically inspired narrative sometimes historical, sometimes fantastic or experimental in theme. The paintings in a series engage the viewer with wit and humour to reveal linear and nonlinear patterns.
