For his third show with P·P·O·W, Adam Putnam will exhibit a suite of landscapes in which his gaze has shifted toward the infinitely distant, toward that impossible place where sky meets water, where perspective meets memory and tiny events punctuate otherwise empty washes of ink: a beacon, an island, a wayward cloud, like characters orphaned from a Magritte painting.
Adam Putnam (b. 1973) is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York, whose work has appeared in various exhibitions and institutions worldwide including the 2008 Whitney Biennial; the 2nd Moscow Biennial; the Busan Biennial, South Korea; MoMA P.S.1 and The Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo.
