Kana Manglapus Projects is pleased to present “Escape,” an exhibition of photographs by Adam Secore.  This is the artist’s first ever solo exhibition.

“Escape,” showcases a series of 7 large-scale landscape photographs, which depict cathartic moments in the artist’s life where he is running away yet seemingly getting closer to his true self.  Through these captivating images, which illustrate times of flight, freedom, release, withdrawal, liberation, and awe, Secore seeks clarity.

Through his images, Secore illustrates his ability to find beauty in any given situation.  His work acts as a reflection on individual experience, challenging the familiar.

While on a 10 day motorcycle trip through the mountains of Canada, Secore feared death like never before. After several grueling and tiring hours on his bike he came upon a site, which he describes as majestic and intoxicating. In this moment, Secore was able to capture one of his most raw images. “I felt danger like I didn’t know, and I pushed myself harder than ever, and it felt good,” said Secore.

Adam Secore was born in 1980 in Fort Worth, Texas.   He lives and works in Los Angeles.  Until recently, he has been best known for his commercial work featured in GQ, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Elle, Numero, and Vogue Italia.  In January 2011, he began exhibiting work from his Fine Art portfolio at Kana Manglapus Projects with the inaugural exhibition of the gallery in Venice, Ca.  He has exhibited at galleries in Los Angeles and New York, including Kana Manglapus Projects, SHFT, and Milk Gallery.
