Loop Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition by Mark Adair entitled Death’s Epilogue: The Glass House Window.
Adair has always simultaneously worked on parallel projects. The two featured in this show are the Death Drinks series (1999-2015) which Adair concludes with more small charcoal drawings and the new piece, The Glass House Window, which is a glass, steel and lead window featuring a version of the Tree of Knowledge. Death’s Epilogue is ironic and dark; The Glass House Window is a new departure for Adair — it is a meditation on the need for sincerity.
Adair graduated from York University with his BFA and went on to do his MFA at the University of Victoria in B.C. in the early 80’s. After returning to Toronto in 1983 he almost immediately became involved in Green politics, and the questions and anxieties that have arisen from the observation of the steady deterioration of our planet have formed the basis of his work for the last thirty years. ‘How did we get to this place?’ Why did we allow it to happen?’ ‘Why are we so reticent “to do something” before it is too late?’
