A widely respected artist who has exhibited in galleries in New York, London and across the UK since the early 90’s. His distinctive oil paintings express an emotional interpretation and abstraction of the natural world around him, using hand ground pigments to maximise depth and luminosity and intensify the emotive response.
Jon Adam’s unique style of painting has evolved over the many years he has worked with paint, influenced by the nature and light that surrounded him when growing up on an isolated private country estate in Cornwall. This had a profound effect on his identity and was the stimulus for his creativity.
His relationship with the paint has always fascinated him, feeling that the transition from thought and emotion to the application of paint on canvas is critical and magical.
Working with the surface and an evocative use of colour to build depth, Adam creates his own world of emotional internalised landscapes.
