22nd March - 6th April
Public view Saturday 22nd March 3pm - 7pm
Please join us for the first in a series of exhibitions curated by Isis Gallery at the beautiful Regency Town House in Brighton's Brunswick Square. The Impossible Garden is a presentation of new paintings by Harry Adams, the artistic construct of Steve Lowe and Adam Woods. Using a principal register of oil, charcoal and beeswax encaustic on canvas, Harry Adams extraordinary paintings address themes of power, nature, interruption and struggle with rare verve.
This exhibition of recent paintings features a range of subjects and scales. Often Harry Adams paintings exhibit replacements and alterations, scrapings and sketchings, while subject matter includes enough force and doom to reveal the hands of terminal romantics. One of Blake’s Proverbs of Hell states ‘You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.’ Often with HA this line is crossed with an agreement that “enough is enough” and the work ceases.
