Preview night Friday 27 July, 6 – 8pm, all welcome!
‘Happy, All Smiles’ is Adam Bridgland’s first solo exhibition in Scotland and launches three new prints made with Peacock’s master printmakers.
Alongside the three latest editions, the exhibition will also include new works, sculptures and vinyl installations that explore Bridgland’s fascination with the mundane and the everyday, and the constant pursuit of finding an escape from these.
About the artist
Described as ‘your favourite leisure time artist’, Adam embraces the everyday object finding inspiration from the colouring book image, travel guidebooks, and scout camping paraphernalia. Kitsch and humorous, yet equally poignant, Adam’s work rejoices in the mundane and is an investigation of the notion that holiday-making is just another ordinary everyday activity and that the holiday is essentially a fantasy that rarely lives up to our expectations.
Adam Bridgland (b. 1979) lives and works in London. He graduated with a Masters in Fine Art at the Royal College of Art in 2006 and has since exhibited widely in the UK, Europe, Asia and America. The British Museum, the V&A, UBS, Boeing Asia and Debbie Harry are just some of the collectors of Adam’s work.
