The Artist: Michael Adamson (1971) 

"Adamson is a terrific colourist and knows extraordinarily well how to get paint onto a canvas" - Gary Michael Dault, Globe and Mail

Michael Adamson is a Canadian painter, photographer and curator who is primarily known for a style that blends landscape with abstraction. 

At first influenced by modernist painters, such as Hans Hofmann and Gerard Richter, he became in time an abstract painter using ideas of landscape with horizon lines and configurations that could be read as water and skies.  Adamson's breakthrough moment as a painter in Canada occurred in 1998 when he started to compose paintings in which he used grids to mirror the material of the canvas.  His painterly signature is composed of discs of bright pigment applied to brilliantly hued canvas. 

Adamson's work is internationally recognized and has been exhibited in London, Toyko, New York, Canada and across the USA. He is widely collected in public and corporate collections include Sir Paul Smith, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of Montreal.
