“A baptism, a drowning: When context is stripped, the vulgarity and violence of the ritual is exposed. Layers of dirt, sand, wax and paint energize the struggle between persons and submersion.” – Adam Lupton
Adam Lupton’s “Telos (The Drowning)” is a triumphant turn in his exploration of human ritual. In the first installment of the Sugarlift Masterwork Series, hear the work decoded by the artist himself.
If you’ve ever hungrily searched a wall label for more details about an artist’s materials, process or even his psyche during a painting’s creation, Sugarlift Masterwork Series is for you. Each month, we get up close and personal with the artist behind the masterpiece.
