Following the success of Adrian Pritchard's exhibition Terraforma at the Grundy Gallery in 2018, Terranova is an extended version of this incorporating new additional works.
Deeply rooted in and inspired by his ongoing research into extrasolar planets (Exoplanets), the paintings that make up Terranova demonstrate the scientific approach that the artist takes to his work. Pouring resins and metallic pigments onto rounded discs, the artist physically manipulates the paint by tipping and turning it. Over time, and as a result of chemistry and gravity, the materials then settle into their own shapes and patterns creating multi-layered compositions that reference the dynamic and ever-changing surface of planets.
Terranova meaning "new land" explores the discovery of these new worlds much of which have been discovered by the KEPLER space observatory launched by NASA. Its Adrian's goal to twin these discoveries with his own creations and attempt to visualise these new worlds like precious jewels.
