Adam Handler (American b. 1986)
“When creating a work on paper/drawing, I work on the floor leaning over the piece; it’s a personal and psychical experience. Within these intimate confines I feel free to experiment with new concepts. Many of the tiny works on display represent a purging of my thoughts, passions, insecurities, nightmares and dreams.”
Adam Handler - 2019
Adam Handler, born in Queens - NY, creates dynamic works that express naive chaos through themes of loneliness, imagination, solitude and connection. Handler studied life drawing in Italy and has shown works at exhibitions all around the world, from New York to Seoul. As Adam describes, “when these styles of works that you see were conceived I specifically turned off my mind and allowed only emotion, actions and spirit to guide the works.” This is exemplified in the bold, bright strokes that Handler employs.
There’s no doubt that his pieces are incredibly unique, the work of an individual vision. His studio, a cabin in Armonk, gives him space to create his impressive, large scale works.
