  • Thomas Adam utilises a diverse range of printing methods and sculptural elements to create notions of an extended metaphysical space beyond the surface of the flat image. The recurring male character in the artist’s work can be interpreted as an autobiographical figure, contemplative about the self yet disconnected from it. Adam has synthesised multiple visual influences including the illustrated drawings of Saul Steinberg and Charles Altamont Doyle; as well as the minimalist structures of Sol Le Witt.
