Welcome to the opening reception in the presence of the artist, Thursday, February 7, 5-7 pm.

Adam Saks’s (born 1974) vividly colorful oil paintings are bursting with allusions to history, graffiti, and social issues. These eclectic paintings, on display at Galerie Forsblom, lead us on a journey through hallucinations and an exquisite longing for exotic lands and adventure.

Saks’s new paintings are full of narrative elements: frogs, lizards and a pipe smoking moon combined with the presence of human beings immersed in a painted reality with floral structures and tattoo iconography in the darker hues required of a dramatic arc. In the floating daydreams of the paintings, the objects of passionate pursuit may be dreams, wild animals, or entwined objects of unsatisfied desire
