Enthused to explore the potential of national identity, Adam Kelly?s work develops notions of history and ideologies. His characteristically Eurocentric compositions are conducted with an autonomous determination, linking his oeuvre to the ideals and disillusions of modernism. His exorcising approach to painting reveals his successes and failures to represent nostalgic and historical memories, constructing new situations to comment on the theme of nationalism.
Adam was born in London in 1989, and lives and works in Surrey. He completed a BA in Fine Art at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham in 2012 and is set to start the Painting Studio Programme at Turps Art School London in September 2014. Previous shows include 'Grandfather', AirSpace Gallery (solo 2013), 'ArtWorks Open 2013', ArtWorks Project Space (2013), 'Hot-One-Hundred', Schwartz Gallery (2013), 'Milk Money', The Gallery in Redchurch Street (2012), and 'Eat My Hat', 10 Gales Gallery (2011). He was the inaugural Graduate Artist-in-Residence at AirSpace Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent and continues to find inspiration in his English-Polish ancestry.
