Musician Adam Green has recently expanded on his other career, his oeuvre of painting/drawing and papier maché, building on his personal set of symbols to take his art to the next level with his latest exhibition. Painted in a reductionist palette of wines and “bruises”, the pieces in this show are partly inspired by Georges Rouault, tarot and the transcendental notions of tribal art. He recently spent 6 months studying the tarot and learning more about life, only to give it up because he no longer found it “a productive thing to do.” His next venture, he guesses, just might be textiles. Watch our interview below.
