March 19 – May 21, 2022
Adam Fung’s possible magic examines how we navigate trajectory within the Anthropocene’s precarious states. Primarily using painting as means to survey the condition of the planet, Adam Fung considers a range of research interests that touch upon issues such as eco-anxiety, climate change, the history of landscape imagery, and interconnected systems also known as hyperobjects.
Intentionally working with oil paint, these slow moving, layered surfaces are a resistance to the slickness, speed, and expectations of the digital world or media we encounter daily. Each work employs a dynamic color palette that speaks to the dichotomy of beauty and destruction in contemporary landscapes. With each encounter we must ask ourselves: what lies over the seen and unseen horizon?
