Adam Neate continues to develop his dimensional oeuvre and stylistic themes, introducing less familiar subject matter and returning to a darker palette and atmosphere first seen in his earlier 3D cardboard works.

The young, self-taught artist's use of technological processes and experimentation alongside an almost mathematical exploration of perspective, space and sculptural form, together with his physical, expressive use of paint make a powerful, cohesive statement of where the artist is at this stage of his career.

"This new body of work has felt like a quest to explore and expand within my own language of painting. The paintings may look stylistically different to each other, but they all follow a core inner pathway of the same dimensional language. I ventured outside of my comfort zone to paint things I would not normally paint. Substance over style; If I wanted the language to fully flourish I had to give it the opportunity to speak about any possible subject matter” ADAM NEATE

Neate naturally embraces both the Pop ethos and the strong British figurative tradition, coming up with something vital and new. His work is in public and private collections in 30 countries, and, after exhibiting in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and China for the past five years, he has an impressive and growing fan base throughout Asia and the Far East.

This, his first major selling exhibition in UK since 2012 is an eagerly awaited opportunity for UK collectors and visitors to London to see the extraordinary recent developments of this young painter, who challenges the very notion of what painting is.
