19 July - 13 August 2016

In 2015 Richard Adams partook in an 8-week “working artist” residency at Winchester College, England. He found the whole experience very interesting and believes it is a rare opportunity that is available for other artists. The programme involved Adams mentoring the students and teaching alongside painting. Additionally, each artist is obliged to leave a commission piece that is paid for by the college.

The works in Other Views have an obvious link to his time in the United Kingdom and Europe via his translation of the light. The light in the northern hemisphere is not as contrasting as in the Pacific. Adams has employed muted tones and has played down contrast. He feels that when he was in residency at Winchester College, he subconsciously painted with muted contrast being affected by his immediate environment.

In some sense Adams has continued with what he calls his key lines theme that implies the landscape. He says he has made a shift since his pervious body of work rather than making a significant change. Just before making the Winchester College commission work, the artist visited the 2015 Venice Biennale for a week. He drew inspiration from Venetian walls of gorgeous colours and tactile texture... Adams loves surfaces.
