SOLO EXHIBITION AT MANIFEST GALLERY (Cincinnati)
Opening Reception - Friday, April 17, 6-9 p.m
recent paintings by Adrian Cox
Public artist's talk: TBD
This solo exhibition of Adrian Cox's work is one of eleven selected from among 199 proposals submitted for consideration in Manifest's current season.
Border Creatures brings an entire ecosystem into Manifest's Main Gallery, populating it with Cox's recent surreal conceptions. Walking a delicate and therefore powerful line between narrative illustration, traditional figurative painting subjects, and expressionism, the mostly large works allude to much that has come before, yet they stand firmly on their own. This makes for what can only be considered a unique and impactful experience in the situation of an in-the-round gallery presentation.
