Adam Lovitz


Lovitz (b. 1985) is inspired by the accumulations that build up on surfaces over the course of everyday life. He layers paint with the addition of various materials to create his dimensional compositions which hover in between abstraction and figuration. Incorporating textures such as locally procured schist results in an even greater appearance of depth due to the additives' ability to absorb and reflect light. This use of terrestrial textures mixed into saturated colors gestures towards the natural world, providing a jumping-off point for assembling a final image—much like assigning order and meaning to a constellation of stars. Lovitz's works speak of transformation through time while celebrating the interconnectedness of our world as a counterbalance to an encroaching inorganic disconnect from contemporary life. 


Lovitz is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and his works have been recently exhibited locally at the Woodmere Art Museum, Fjord Gallery, AUTOMAT Gallery and Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, as well as regionally at VCUArts (Richmond, VA), The Painting Center (NYC), the MANA Contemporary (Chicago), Helen J Gallery (LA), SPRING/BREAK Art Show (NYC) and Trestle Gallery (NYC).  His work is in numerous private collections across the country.
