Solo show at Kevin Day Studio // Gallery
Featuring new work from O’Day’s Cityscapes and Structures series
Kevin Day is proud to host Adam O'Day's new oil paintings for the holiday season.
The show O'DAY sums up the two main series that the artist has been working on for the past few years. The Cityscapes theme explores direct visuals and surroundings, while the Structures series creates mind-scapes of the soul.
Often depicting local scenes with a gritty flair, O’Day’s work drips with color. In his pieces, red and blue clouds hang behind Kenmore, pastels reflect the city’s skyline in the Charles River, and the brownstones of Newbury Street dress themselves in tie-dye. O’Day’s depictions of Boston go beyond what is there, beyond what he actually sees. They place emotion above reality. They represent what he feels. “I think it’s important to get down to the nitty gritty of a place and express that through color,” O’Day said. “It’s a more interesting vibe.” -Ariana Igneri, BDCwire
Adam O'Day is one of Boston's brightest and most prolific young artists to emerge on the arts scene in a long time. His work is both timeless and brand new at the same as he combines fine art disciplines, nu-contemporary lines and bits of modern street art to create a painting style all his own. -Future Arts, Boston Children's Charity
