COLLIDER Part 3 presents large-scale landscape paintings of "great terror and beauty", featuring flooded lands and turbulent skies. Installed alongside prints, books, and other works by the artist over three floors of a retro-futuristic art clinic. Part of Mayfair Art Weekend.

About

The third and final part of Harry Adams’ COLLIDER Project presents a series of large- scale screen-print paintings and other works by the artist over three floors of a retro-futuristic art clinic in the heart of Mayfair, London.

The screen-print paintings, some reminiscent of giant Rorschach inkblot tests, are made by layering, overlapping and inverting multiple painted and screen-printed motifs depicting flooded lands and turbulent skies. Cultivating tensions between the organic aesthetics of painterly chaos and the systematic methodology of print-making, Harry Adams creates works brimming with the energy of fragmented worlds in collision. Relishing human errors, and the tactile qualities of layered pigment, the overlayed screen-pulls are used to construct new realms on the brink of pictorial calamity.

Installed within the pristine whiteness of The Clinic, under the constant drone of an industrial ventilation system, potted oak saplings grown in the artist’s studio sit incongruously in the sterile space on plinths that emit strange sounds – a soundtrack for the exhibition recorded by the artist(s). Themes of nature in revolt and dystopian science fiction run throughout Adams’ work, alongside the tradition of romantic landscape painting contrasted with process art: all riffing off a love of repetition and Warhol’s ambition to “become a machine” in making paintings.

PARTY

Join us to celebrate the exhibition and the end of lockdown restrictions (we hope) at our Post-Lockdown COLLIDER Party on Friday 25th June. RSVP to L-13@L-13.org
