Adam Caldwell is a Bay area painter whose work explores the intersection of the psychological and the cultural. Taking stylistic elements from abstract expressionism and classical figuration, and combining them with the pop cultural and the illustrative, Caldwell amalgamates distinct and seemingly adverse vocabularies to invoke contemporary conflicts. With an interest in the thematic exploration of self and other, present and past, identity and gender, the artist explores the polarities of the colonized self with a social and political conscience. Caldwell’s work unfolds like a surreal psychological tableau, presenting a simultaneity of antagonisms and unresolved impulses: life set against death, the serious in concert with the absurd, the beautiful coexisting alongside the abject. These juxtapositions of violent classicism and seductive destruction challenge the feigned simplicity of our cultural paradigms.
