Adam Lupton is an artist and painter hailing from Canada; he received degree at Emmy Carr University in Art and Design.
Adam Lupton’s art is a splintered depiction, somewhere between various states or alternate realities. All of this is beautifully laid out in an expressive yet heavily-defined juxtaposition between brush strokes and dabs of oil paint and medium.
The execution of the art resembles the impatient confusion in which Lupton’s subjects find themselves. His subjects, almost distorted with indecision, paint for us a double-exposed picture of a single moment — one with both human rebellion and submission in action together. The combination of his realistic subjects painted in expressive and loose brush strokes perfectly add a sense of urgency within his art, which captures the moment immensely. This causes the viewer to take on an almost voyeuristic role, a feeling of intruding on the subject’s private thoughts and probable regrets.
His subject matter flirts with concepts of free will and its role in human introspection. His subjects are cloudy with some appearing to be trapped in an obsessive self-correcting state, trapped in motion, on the verge of becoming jaded.
