Ron Adams, 'Brief Candle In The Dark'

Galerie pompom, Sydney
27 February - 17 March 2019
Opening Wednesday 27 February, 6-8pm

Ron Adams’ solo exhibition, Brief Candle In The Dark, is titled after Richard Dawkins’ second autobiography. The great thinker and scientist is a hero of Adams’ and inspired this series of 17 photographic portraits of artists, musicians and writers who have influenced the artist. As Adams says: ‘For various reasons all of these people attract me in one way or another, they are like brief candles in the dark. I could spend a lot of time with any of them, and with some I could have a lifelong relationship. In fact the series does include my partner of more than 50 years, George Adams. I have the utmost respect for these people, they intrigue me, they are interesting and clever. This project is a psychological adventure into human behaviour and how relationships work.’
