Canadian artist Adam Lupton's gaze explores psychological and sociological struggles in modern society. Painting in oil, blurring lines between realism and expressionism helps Lupton probe the internal and external dialogue faced in his multi-directional narratives.
His recent work pits moments of choice against the visualization of their outcomes: temporal planes coexisting on a singular surface. With the notion of quantum mechanics having every possible outcome to a situation realized in splintered universes, he paints figures with varied levels of connection to reality. To question our process of free will as well as our concepts of space, time, fate, and self; if every decision comes true in one parallel life or another, are we as free as we think we are?
Adam Lupton holds his Bachelors of Communication Design from Emily Carr University or Art and Design, having graduated in 2010, and is currently enrolled at The New York Academy of Art for his Master of Fine Arts.
