Miasma – Adam Hogarth

323$

CMYK print with gloss varnish overprint. This is a print of a rubber Donald Trump mask taken from my collection/research of masks. As the Corona virus gripped the globe, right wing, populist governments came out with the worst infection and death rates. Inept alt-right leaders who put finance over social care were exposed and the mask of demagogue leaders such as Trump showed signs of finally slipping.

Description

About the Artist

Adam’s work is multi-disciplinary; however, it is firmly rooted in print. He uses etching and particularly screenprint processes as a conduit to articulate ideas. Adam is interested in notions of auto-destruction, often creating social commentaries entrenched in politics, art history, commercialisation and community. Adam’s works can appear comically biting, cynical and sometimes cruel, yet at their core is humour, hope and bewilderment at human language.

Adam’s current body of works is titled “The Future’s Forgotten Rituals” which chronicles a series of communities that hang onto existence 900 years after a global and environmental catastrophe. This work documents the ritualistic behaviours of these communities involving mask-wearing and the idolising of found photographs.
