Adam Neate Dimensional Editions & Paintings

I have always been an ambivalent admirer of Adam Neate mainly because I find his work a little sad and despairing. But seeing his first major solo show Dimensional Editions & Paintings at The Elms Lester Painting Rooms changed that mind set irrevocably and pretty much as soon as I entered the room. The mood of is work seems to have taken a shift and the vibrant figures represented in the works on show all seem to be moving forward, active and definite. The ‘Hug’ is a beautiful stand alone piece which in all honesty I could have just focused on all day but unfortunately back in the real world the parking meter was ticking away.

I woke late this morning so missed out on the book signing by Adam and was a little irritated about this before entering the building but by the time I left the show I was comforted by the fact that I now had some seriously dynamic colour in my head and a print under my arm. Dimensional Editions & Paintings runs until 27 October 2012 at The Elms Lester Painting Rooms Flitcroft Street WC2.
