Adam Welch Presents "bricked-up"

From December 5 - 31, Adam Welch, Acting Director at Greenwich House Pottery will have his work featured at an exhibition at the Thomas Hunter Project Space, with a reception on Friday, December 10 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Adam's work is a study in contrasts: brick and mortar assemblages hung on the wall, resplendent and rigid.

The elegant and always fresh Martha Stewart Paints bedazzle the rigid, rough and dense surface of the brick paintings. Delicate pastels stain the surface of these small yet heavy paintings, breathing new life into the previously solitary existence of bricks.

“The bricks are performance and labor. The brick paintings turn performative labor into objects...Inspired by bricked-up windows and painted advertisements, the bricks illustrate a further existence with linguistic potential. The paints are Martha Stewart Living, a symbol of culture and advertising. Stewart’s democratization of taste frees us from having to establish our own aesthetic. The six-symbol system allows anyone, regardless of age, education, ethnicity, gender, or sexual preference, to create ‘a harmonious scheme and beautiful transitions.’”
-­‐Adam Welch
