We are excited to open our 2015–16 Featured Member Exhibition series with the talented Adam James Stoner. Originally from North Carolina and now based in Milwaukee, Adam engages the audience with his mixed medium paintings that capture emotions and spark curiosity.
Statement and Bio:
Oh, Beatific Vision! Catatonic Hallucination! is a series of gut-driven travels through unfamiliar landscapes of the soul. The images are visual translations of human psyche, the religious impulse, and childhood memories that continue to grip me with wordless emotion.
Purpose and purposelessness; divinity and madness; life and death. I am engrossed in this sweet-yet-sad dream, yearning for an answer that will cleave my soul from my flesh like the skin from a chicken breast.
Gouache, Watercolor, drawing materials; Arches White, Cream 140#, 300#
