LX

7 - 22 December 2017

This year, Richard Adams returned to his boyhood roots for a month-long residency at Wellesley School for boys in his old stomping ground, Wellington. He enjoyed the opportunity to revisit areas that he now realises inspired his passion for surfaces and landscapes; the harbour (looking across to Eastbourne), the often changeable and very specific light, rugged seaside towns, everything weather worn, in some state of decay.

A bus shelter right across the road from Wellesley School was perfect resource for a project of translating surfaces during his residency.

Adams’ latest body of work for LX is a culmination of paintings he began during his residency in Wellington. He says he uses an historical colour palette grown from memory and feeling about impressive scenery. Using the language he has developed over the years to translate the views and imagery he finds inspiring, LX celebrates Richard turning sixty, his love of painting and on-going dedication to his art practice.
