Justin Adian

Fort Worth

Description

Published on the occasion of the exhibition, Fort Worth, which was on view at Skarstedt Chelsea from September 10 - October 24, 2015.

The exhibition featured 15 new works in a wide range of sizes, and marks the artist’s second solo show with Skarstedt. The title of the exhibition alludes to an ever-present influence on Adian’s work—his time spent in Fort Worth and the attitude of Texas.

Adian remarks, "I sometimes look at the paintings I made in undergrad and see the same kind of abstraction with relation to shapes and color. The work is visually very different from when I was working in Texas but some of the same notions are still kicking around.” The artist's sculpted paintings exude playfulness through the vibrant colors, unique forms, and witty titles, such as Playback, Slip It In, Fixin It, and Layover.

The publication features 20 color reproductions, as well as an original essay by art critic, Dave Hickey.
