Press on Exhibit - The Eugene Review

Karin Clarke Gallery is proud to present a solo show of new work by Eugene oil painter Adam Grosowsky during the month of December. Grosowsky, known for his grand-scale, dramatic portraits of women, has spent this year producing a compelling new series for this exhibit. The paintings, each depicting a boy and a large animal, have titles such as “Boy with Lion” and “Boy on Manchurian Crane”.

This fantastical series was inspired by Los caprichos, a set of 80 etchings by one of Grosowsky’s art heroes, Goya. These are bizarre and sometimes disturbing images, in some of which Goya depicts dream-like self-portraits with animals.

Grosowsky’s imaginings are more innocent and playful, and are painted in his characteristic lush, bold brushstrokes. I am reminded that Grosowsky was an accomplished falconer as a child; in his portfolio is a picture of himself as a young boy handling an enormous falcon.

In addition, the exhibit will include paintings of figures, portraits, as well as landscapes. Bold composition and dramatic contrasts continue to distinguish Grosowsky’s work. His fans will find much to admire!

Adam Grosowsky’s work has been extensively collected in the Northwest and across the US. He was featured in Lux Magazine, and locally his paintings can be seen at Pacific Women’s Center, and the University of Oregon Knight Library. Nordstrom Department Store has commissioned over 80 of his paintings for their flagship locations nationwide. 

Adam was born in Chicago in 1959. He received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from Evergreen State College in 1981 and his Masters of Arts and Masters of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the University of Iowa in 1984 and 1986 respectively. During this time, he studied under the famous printmaker Mauricio Lasansky. 

Although much of his training was in printmaking, his primary medium today is oil painting. His large canvasses, often portraits of women, are studies in light and dark. They are distinguished by dramatic contrasts—light or bright color against large areas of rich, dark background. 

Adam has been a full-time faculty member of Lane Community College in Eugene, teaching painting, figure drawing and printmaking since 1996.
