Inferior Interior

An exhibition by Luke Adams

Exhibition runs November 1 - 22

"This solo exhibition Inferior Interior marks a shift to incorporate pictorial painting into my broader contemporary art practice. Within this series of paintings contradictions of contemporary life are explored via different painting styles. Influences from Realism and the Renaissance are paired with minimal abstraction. The works explore notions of fraught histories, unrealistic ambitions, individual dislocation, fractured identities and domestic ideals.

I have long been concerned with the relationship between 2d & 3d, and the slippage between them—where one becomes the other. In this series I bring my conceptual and spatial practice to the conventions of painting with the aim of fostering a greater engagement with this resilient and historical medium. In doing so, I hope to strengthen the 2d elements within my work while engaging in a broader discussion about the role of painting in contemporary art."

Luke recently completed an MFA from the VCA and is a sessional lecturer at RMIT.
