In the exhibition “Unnatural Selection,” Adrian will unveil his newest collection of acrylic paintings, including some of his largest to date. His lush acrylic paintings of birds range from the delightfully cute to the decidedly sinister. These distinctive avian portraits are paired with unique and unexpected titles that cleverly allow the artist to juxtapose the purity of the natural world with the anxieties and absurdities of the modern human experience.
Adrian says he is thrilled to be working with Hey There Projects, noting that the gallery is exhibiting some of the most eclectic and interesting artwork out there, and was the perfect home for his biggest solo exhibition to date. He hopes those checking out the show to enjoy the art make time to read the carefully crafted, humorous titles for a singular and entertaining experience.
