past exhibition | Adam King: Storm Field | 19 February - 20 March 2016
Adam King: Storm Field CANAL is delighted to present new works on paper by Norfolk-born artist Adam King.

The drawings take inspiration from new building developments in the Norfolk countryside and explore contemporary relationships to the landscape and the landscape tradition.

Acrylic spray paint and stencils compose a semi-abstract language of geometric forms and outlines within a pared-down whole.
The iconic forms, fleeting light effects and brooding atmospheres of Norfolk are evoked, alongside references to the landscapes of Ravilious, Nash, Ruisdael and Constable.

Adam King was born in Norfolk, and lives and works in London. He completed his MA in Drawing at Wimbledon College of Art.

His works are held in numerous collections, including Saatchi Gallery, V22 and World Wildlife Fund.
Current exhibitions include an installation of collages at Merton College, Oxford, curated by Gallery Attache in association with Flora Fairbairn.

Recent solo exhibitions include We Live Together Like A Sky on Fire (CANAL), After the Sky Fell In (Burlington Gardens at the Royal Academy), Canary Wharf Public Windows Programme, and Remix: Selections from the International Collage Center (USA museums touring group exhibition).
