Simone DeSousa Gallery says
Simone DeSousa Gallery is pleased to present two new solo exhibitons:
Adam Shirley, "Ordinary Objects" in Gallery 1
Bowie Croisant, "Impression" in Gallery 2

ADAM SHIRLEY // Ordinary Objects
Ordinary objects often gain subjective meaning and value from their innate ability to activate personal associations to memories, emotions and events from the past. In his most recent body of work, a series of domestic objects and scenes, Shirley explores his own personal connections and experiences in relation to material, memory and meaning.

Adam Shirley received his BFA degree from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan and a Master of Fine Arts from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Shirley has been recently awarded the Toby Devan Lewis Fellowship. Adam Shirley's work has been shown nationally and internationally, including a solo exhibition at GalerieGallery, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in 2015.

BOWIE CROISANT // Impression
Bowie Croisant investigates ideas relating to a tension between intent and intuition. This plays out through a fundamental examination of making, materials, and processes. Any individual action, form, or mark, that occurs within the studio may be subjected to extraction and elevation. Predispositions, material phenomena, and subconscious actions and moments(particularly those that may be commonly overlooked) within the studio, are curated and aestheticized. The work is informed by a background in ceramics, and oscillates between sculpture and painting, raising questions about artistic/object production.

Bowie Croisant earned an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2014, and currently lives and works in Chicago, IL, where he is the Assistant Director of Ceramics Facilities at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Croisant’s work has been featured in numerous domestic exhibitions and several exhibitions in Denmark. Bowie Croisant’s work is held many private collections as well as the by Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art.
