Click to enlargeADRIAN COLEMAN CITIZENS OF NOWHERE
Jun 26 - Jul 22, 2021
Coleman makes large watercolour paintings of South London that address broader themes of identity, estrangement, and belonging. The pieces mainly depict the area of Brixton, where Coleman lives and keeps a studio, although the work evokes an atmosphere and urban texture common to the city's outer boroughs. Coleman's paintings feel at once familiar and unsettling. Famously, Brixton is a bustling neighbourhood. Yet Coleman represents its unassuming terrace houses, estates, and markets as solitary places. The scenes suggest a psychological geography in the time of Brexit and coronavirus.
 
Adrian Coleman studied at Yale University (BA, 2006) and received his masters from Columbia (M.Arch., 2012). Coleman was the winner of the Brooklyn Museum GO Open Studio Competition in 2012 and was awarded the Hopper prize in 2020. He appeared in the Bronx Museum's Biennial and BRIC's Brooklyn Biennial. He has an upcoming solo exhibition at Taymour Grahne Projects (London), with a previous solo show at Steven Amedee Gallery (NY). Coleman has also participated in group exhibitions at the Mall Galleries, Peckham Levels, and the Willis Museum.
