“I quite like this contrast between classical, figurative, and contemporary art. That’s why I paint portals. It has to do with time travel and imagining somewhere else.”
Adrian Gardner explores the meaning of life, mortality and adventure through the use of vibrant, colourful landscape paintings. Gardner draws inspiration from artists throughout history such as Titian, Francis Bacon and Damien Hirst who have used painting as a way to express the meaning of life and death. Gardner’s use of figurative landscape painting and geometric abstraction create a body of work that explores the impermanence of life and the beauty of nature.
