Wayne E Adams
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Gowanus



ARTIST STATEMENT: I am interested in painting as a lens through which to reconcile my perception of the corporeal world with intangible notions of intense human emotion, experience and meaning. It is an understanding of art as a treatise on human nature—the practice of making art as a means of making one more human.

In my most recent work, I am utilizing abstraction to explore Slavoj Zizek’s notion of The Void and the event/rift from his book, The Fragile Absolute: or Why is the Christian legacy worth fighting for?. Triangles become anthropomorphized and stand in for individuals and communities, events and emotions and also The Void—the place/frame of sublimation in and artwork (traditionally a painting).
