Adam Galea
  Interactions

28 June - 22 July 2012


Adam Galea's Interactions is a new series of miniature, and not-so-miniature, sculptures - melding clays,

metals, resins and wood. Through technique and concept Galea represents and reimagines a world that is

simultaneously strange, quirky, cute and horrific.

 

Interactions establishes a narrative and juxtaposition of harmonious chaos, investigating the human predicament,

intertwined with everyday and non-everyday objects, situations, realities and phenomena. Galea critiques a

life of absurd struggle - with an almost morose humour - that is full of contradictions and paradoxes of

the imaginable and the unimaginable.

 

Adam Galea graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Sculpture) from the National Art School in 2010.


Adam Galea, Interactions has been supported from funding of ATVPs Spotlight on Local & Emerging
Artists Program by The Visual Arts & Craft Strategy and the NSW Government through Arts NSW.
