Adam Palmer: Sentimental Circus

In the FWA satellite gallery, Adam Palmer will show a series of abstract installations and drawings that are vibrant with fine lines of intentional color titled, The Sentimental Circus. Growing up in the 80’s in the small west Texas town of Monahans, Palmer used MTV, Nickelodeon and HBO as a form of escapism. These sources provide an aesthetic that he tries to portray in his work. In his latest body of work “The Sentimental Circus” Palmer has tried to capture certain periods in his life using the shapes, symbols and colors of that time.
