Adam DeBoer explains the theory behind the paintings
So you walk into an art exhibit and you see pretty pictures. Sometimes the picture looks exactly like the thing it's trying to depict. Sometimes it's a little more, how shall we say, abstract. Regardless, there's something about the work that appeals to your eye and you might not know why at first. Not unless you talk to the artist about the work. This happened to me with Adam DeBoer's work. His paintings are pleasing to the eye and he has a great hand. But to be honest, other than the the precise construction of the works, I was pretty ignorant of the color theory he was using. Then Adam explained it to me and I found it so interesting that I thought he should explain it to everyone in this little video so that when you go see the work at the opening on Friday you will understand it better.
Opens Friday, October 15, 6 to 8 PM, Flashpoint Gallery, 916 G Street, NW.
