Micro Chasm (Paintings)
By placing exquisitely executed landscape paintings within (and underneath) webs of
biological-seeming abstraction New York-based painter Shane McAdams examines the tradition
of easel and landscape painting and the basic processes of nature itself, exposing the folly of
the human desire to outperform or challenge the forces of nature. McAdams received his MFA
from the Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, NY) in 2004, and his work has been exhibited at the
Marlborough Gallery (New York, NY), Pace Wildenstein Gallery (New York, NY), and Caren
Golden Fine Art (New York, NY).
