> DESCRIPTION
Quint Contemporary Art is pleased to present an exhibition of recent paintings by San Diego artist Adam Belt.  This will be Adam’s first solo show at Quint Contemporary Art.  There will be a public reception on July 13 from 6 to 8 pm. The artist will be in attendance.

Condensation express’s Adam’s interest in the inherent properties of materials and their potential to reveal the unseen forces that shape our physical world.  He explores these properties in his drawings of man-made dams.  Adam views the dams as physical embodiments, manifestations of our interaction with the landscape culminating in structures defined by the voids they fill and shaped by the physical forces they are built to contain.

To express the relationship between the dams and their surrounding landscapes in material form Adam follows an intuitive process, choosing the materials and images of dams, that best convey the relationship.  Minimalist in appearance, Adam’s fragmentation of the dam’s structure and the contiguous environment, reveal the complex relationship between these massive structures and their topographical context. 

Adam Belt received his BFA from the University of San Diego and completed his MFA from the Claremont Graduate University in 2001 and is now working as an artist and professor in San Diego. His work is included in many local collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.
