Tom Adair: New Romantics

December 14, 2021 - January 15, 2022

Courtesy: the artist and Nanda\Hobbs, Sydney.

Tom Adair’s instantly recognisable artworks initiate a lively discussion in his newest exhibition, New Romantics. The show will be installed for viewing from Tuesday 14 December until 15 January (excluding our Christmas closure time).

Comparing the idyllic landscapes of the 1800’s with the digital environment that envelops us today, Adair utilises text, neon, and his signature hazy, airbrushed style to infuse the exhibition with a duality of sentimentality and spirit.

Three NFTs in the exhibition playfully question the new crypto arena and its intrinsic value—phrases in golden 3D lettering like “FOOLS GOLD” glow from the works while complementing the more traditional works where gold is prominent and text functions as framing.

Having embarked on a six-week break from social media whilst creating the exhibition, Adair is poised for a true self-awareness regarding this subject, which is succinctly communicated through his impressive body of work.

Please join Tom Adair and the Nanda\Hobbs team for drinks to celebrate the opening of New Romance on Thursday 16th December, 6-8pm.
