Adam Handler - Hot and Fast
In thinking about my work over the past 10 years, I can now stand back and ponder what has shaped its very creation. Being a biographical painter, my works have always been a mirror of the events that take place in my life. This is both personal and professional in my exploration of previous artists work. There are some clear inspirations that many correlate to my images such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Willem De Kooning. Although with a closer examination one may find the work rooted in a rather modernist sensibility. Artists such Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin and Constantin Brancusi have been as equally important in the development of the current body of work up at Vered Gallery in East Hampton, NY. What attracted me to Matisse’s work was his ability to create an image that was direct and can be viewed with a narrative and without as well. His ability to construct simple figures, objects and patterns within the canvas made me rethink what’s possible in painting. For instance this figure with rosy cheeks and a cat on a simple background was so influential for me that I have been exploring that relationship for the last 3 years. In combination by relationship with my own cat and wife was the final push for me to explore this composition. - Adam Handler.
