Alexander Adams at University Art Gallery

Birch Trees c. Alexander AdamsThe excellent start to the year continues with the latest exhibition at Liverpool University Art Gallery in Abercromby Square. The title, ‘Icarus’ stems from Alexander Adams latest work specifically for this exhibition which is a series of 50 small paintings showing the motif of a falling, charred figure.
This is a substantial show of Adams’s paintings and works on paper, he limits his palette to black and white only. I particularly like his trees and the simple but effective pencil drawings of small figures. It seems he doesn’t do faces though, there’s a whole section of pictures where the face has either been roughly obliterated or just left completely blank. Interesting.
This is a touring exhibition, most pictures are for sale and a catalogue can be purchased.
‘Icarus’ by Alexander Adams at Liverpool University Art Gallery until March 31st 2006
