Adam Brent creates sculptures and paintings that fuse together new techniques with familiar forms to create something entirely new. “Heroic Faces” and the accompanying works employ colors and patterns inspired by mid 20th century classic porcelain figurines and a palette derived from a range of every day linoleum tile. Colors bleed together and penetrate through the plastic forms with sheen and a disco ball like refraction. The viewer will be impacted by the simultaneously buoyant and seemingly deflated objects, while also mining the notions of loneliness, self doubt, unfulfilled purpose and broad new possibilities. These expressive and meticulously crafted sculptures encourage us to look for meaning in entirely new forms and bodies unknown to the world.
