About the Event
Adagio, a musical term, evokes a sense of slowness in tempo. This series of visceral sculptures aims to recreate this feeling through forms that appear to be suspended in a gravity-free environment. Adagio serves as an antidote to the fast-paced, two-dimensional world of digital screens, encouraging viewers to slow down and appreciate dimension through a collection of minimally gestured figurative and still life compositions.
The forms are created through a unique process, using elastic textiles that are sewn and injected with a liquid that expands and cures into a solid state between layered elastic fabrics. The resulting works, painted in a gradient of oil paint, take on a neutral palette, further encouraging a slower pace of being.
Adagio invites viewers to experience a sense of calm and reflection through its serene sculptures, offering a respite from the frenetic pace of modern life.
