Wednesday 8 May – Monday 19 May
Richard F Adams’ latest exhibition of digital paintings, haunted selfies, follows his journey through and response to critical illness, over the period of a year.
Using his computational expressionism techniques he explores the potential impacts of mental health issues arising from such illness, and how it makes us feel as we battle it.
The works take the form of computational expressionist selfie paintings, exploring the dark side and obverse of selfies and selfie culture, while remaining firmly rooted in the northern European tradition of expressionist self-portraits. The work tears apart the concept of ’selfies’, which are usually presented as, pseudo-romantic images
