The Artwork of Adam Stoner

About the Artist: 

Adam Stoner is an emerging fine artist and scenic designer based in Milwaukee. A third-year M.F.A. candidate at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee's Peck School of the Arts, he is the recipient of UWM's Chancellor's Graduate Student Award, Layton Fellowship, and Williams College's Gilbert W. Gabriel Prize in Theater. Working in painting, drawing, and stop motion animation, Adam visualizes the connections between the architecture of our waking lives and imagined interiorities. How are we mutually inhabited by the very places we inhabit? If we build structures, do they also build us? Common themes include the latent agency of materials, the poetic image, and the question of the sacred at the boundary between interior/exterior.

Artist Statment:

The ladder is a ubiquitous object in the world of theater -- focusing lights, hanging scenery, rigging and painting all happen atop its frame while the work hums on below. Step after step, it allows us to reach above our usual limits, pockets full of tie line, to fix the loose C-clamp and dress the cables neatly. But once the work is done, who hasn't paused on the last rungs and admired things from a sudden distance? The ladders in my paintings pay homage to that tiny moment of transcendence. They invite me in their making to consider my longing for something outside and above the usual. One ladder helps a figure escape a deep pit; a group of ladders lean in a corner like unused potential; a ladder is framed against a dark background, the subject of its own portrait.

The exhibit runs Thursday, February 21, 2019 through Sunday, March 17, 201, during the run of The Velocity of Autumn.
