Adam Parker Smith

Adam Parker Smith

Work from his oeuvre.

"Constructing the aftermath of invented ceremonies from materials including paper, wood and fabric, I create narratives by combining real events, daydreams and preexisting fables. Through this combination, I establish a site for disparate elements to congregate. These tragicomic installations are cartoonishly bright, overtly decorative and colorful. They are populated by subjects pulled from the fertile environment of my fears and longings, polluted with filth, obsessions, crushes, jealousy and grace. With no attempt to disguise the material makeup, my methods of construction parallel the imperfections, flaws and vulnerability reveled in the subject's characters. As guilt, fascination and loyalty encroach, flawless heroines confront heart ache, fools distinguish beauty from the grotesque, and the wretched morn the loss of irreproachable purity." - Adam Parker Smith
