Adam Sorensen’s Places at PDX Contemporary

I’ve followed, championed and worked with Adam Sorensen .. going way back and Places is easily his strongest exhibition to date. I think it is the sublime aspect that isnt just filled with wonder but a certain terror of impossible discovery and landscape that lets us locate our own fantastical expections for nature that works here. It is also his most zen-like un-fussy but precise paint handling that works here. In these somewhat terrible times Sorensen shows us a fantasy that is at once both appealing and synthetically off. It provides a fantastical recalibration and spa-like perceptual respite at the same time.

Places | November 1 – December 2
First Thursday Reception: November 2, 6-8PM
PDX Contemporary
925 NW Flanders

Rockstar Wayne Coyne is also a visual artist and his immersive multimedia installation King’s Mouth is making a stop at PNCA’s 511 Gallery. Is psychedlia enough? Probably… since the spectacular happenings at The Flaming Lips shows are in many ways their signature it would be interesting to explore the aesthetic in a gallery.
