“The paintings are a commentary on the history of Man. They address current and ancient issues of religion, politics, and natural order. Freedom, entropy, and time are key concepts of my work. I use chaos with precision to portray beauty. Each piece is designed to open and to provoke. When nothing is sacred and nothing is safe, art is brave.”
Inspired by Duchamp's Nude descending staircase.
Adam Disbrow was born to be an artist. Practicing music and creating a finished piece of art everyday was mandatory for him during grade school. At the time of his graduation from the University of Virginia, he was recognized as a prolific creator of music, poetry, and visual art — including sculpture, painting, and pencils. In his home of Central Virginia and abroad he is becoming recognized as an exceptional expressionist painter. His work has been celebrated in his hometown of Charlottesville Virginia, his paintings have sold in New York, California, and Virginia, and his prints have sold around the country. Disbrow’s Neo-Expressionistic style combines Abstract Expressionism, European Impressionism, and Neo-Expressionism in a style he calls his own. He has a focus on direct objectivity. The work, as he intends, conveys more than words faster and with greater potency. Disbrow pulls upon both history and culture in his paintings. As a broad student of art history, he acknowledges all art preceding his, and his painting are made to sit on the stairway of Man’s history.
