Adam Bridgland

Jealous East

02 Mar 2023 — 26 Mar 2023

Jealous is pleased to announce the return of interdisciplinary artist Adam Bridgland for his second solo exhibition at the gallery this spring.

Following the success of ‘Time Spent Together In Your Head’ at our Shoreditch gallery in October 2021, Adam’s creative practice has continued to grow and reach new audiences with his nostalgic use of text, found paraphernalia and painted overlays. Connecting his love of music, song writing and his previous life playing in bands, his upcoming exhibition titled 'Small Tom, Middle Tom, Floor Tom, Crash’ showcases a new collection of works filled with vibrant colours and visual noise.
The inspiration and title for the exhibition came from Bridgland’s discovery of an old folder containing song lyrics and band memorabilia while clearing out his old bedroom following his mum’s passing. The exhibition will feature a variety of mediums, such as print, photography, sculpture, drawing and painting, allowing visitors to explore a broad range of themes, imagery and human emotion. Bridgland's artistic approach, which involves the selection of found and created materials and overlaid text, has become a defining feature of his style. The exhibition showcases new interpretations of his most memorable phrases, giving viewers the chance to discover fresh and unique perspectives on the artist's most recognisable expressions.
At the heart of the exhibition will be a series of monoprints created through a collaboration between the artist and his youngest son and burgeoning artist, Cass Bridgland.
