Adamus: Contemporary takes on the original man (Press Release)

Three international artists celebrate the male form in the group exhibition Adamus


Acclaimed artists Matteo Merla, Ian Thompson and Joáo Trindade have come together for the first time in a new exhibition which celebrates the male form in art. 

Adamus, which opens on Thursday 26 April at the Bookshop Gallery Hoxton, looks at the representation of the male form in contemporary art. The title comes from the Latin word for Adam, the first man God created in the Bible. The exhibition features the work of three internationally acclaimed artists who each explore the male form in his own unique style, placing it in a chosen contemporary setting.

Matteo Merla, a painter and sculptor who lives and works in London, studied at the internationally acclaimed and historically prestigious Accademia di belle Arti di Brera, Milan. In addition to a style that draws heavily on his classical roots, Merla’s subject matter is also inspired by both Greek and Roman mythology. These are the elements that inform both the narrative and motifs of his paintings. Merla is a regular exhibitor on the burgeoning East London/Shoreditch art circuit.

Ian Thompson is an internationally collected painter and potter. He divides his time and practice between the UK and France. Thompson’s contribution to Adamus comes from his Memories of the Body series inspired by his reading of Memories of the Body: Tales of Desire and Transformation, a collection of short stories by the writer Lisa Tuttle. Interestingly, Lisa Tuttle’s reputation is as a feminist writer and Thompson injects this irony into his series of pieces focusing on the male form. Thompson’s work was recently selected and shown in the Royal Watercolour Society’s annual competition, which took place at the Bankside Gallery  in February 2012.

Joáo Trindade, who studied and began his artistic practice in his native Portugal before moving to London, has exhibited across the globe. Trindade’s contribution to Adamus is a collection of classically vibrant anatomical studies juxtaposed against a background of contemporary and equally vibrant geometric settings.  In 2011 Trindade’s work was selected by the Saatchi Gallery to form part of its exhibition stand at Art Paris , the modern and contemporary art fair at the Grand Palais Paris. In 2010 his work was part of the Sketchbook Project Tour, which toured numerous states across the USA.
