La Petite Mort Gallery presentsADAM J. ANSELL / New Paintings
August 17-23, 2012
That’s a really good look on you! Up-tight ass holes and invisible dumb-shits, hurry up! Floozies are stumbling in. Flirty wall-flowers, optimistic twinkle-toes who are totally freaked-out. I can’t believe it! Back-stabbers chatting up stubborn pill-popping crusty stink-pots, burping and gesturing and running amok. Hi, how are you? Fine, how are you? Here comes the cute and popular born-again high school hookers. Now who shows up? Gangster bitches and sassy-pants . Grandma’s had one too many. Sorry I’m late”.

The expressionistic works are finally glazed with a glossy acrylic finish, which accentuates the richness of color, and density of each painting. Adam’s edgy high fashion paintings are filled with contradictions: interior and exterior, passionate and empty, rugged and delicate, improvisational and meditational, spontaneous and labored, stark and festive.
