Adam Handler

American, b. 1986

Adam Handler reforms art’s staid conventions of beauty by returning to supposed primal or elementary beginnings, by adopting a child-like style, questioning our conceptions of and presumptions about our surrounding reality. He attempts to present ostensibly unmediated expressions of creativity by eschewing traditional painting technique. His strong colours into his deceptively casual brushstroke, the humorist notes from the daily life and the distortions of scale and form makes people and flowers seem more real than the real ones. Handler’s sophisticated childhood creative artistic expression engages the viewer on the artwork’s own terms.
