This Exhilarating Extension


It’s an exhibition that coincides with a new monograph — and it’s so good that these prestigious New York City galleries asked, “Why take it down December 24?” If you thought you missed this blockbuster, you haven’t.

On view at New York’s Nohra Haime Gallery and Adelson Galleries now through January 21, 2017 is a wide range of works by accomplished artist Adam Straus. With a career spanning nearly four decades, Straus has worked in a variety of media, with representations of each on view during the shows. Among the works are Straus’s sculptures, paintings, works on paper, and photography.

Via the exhibition press, “Straus is known for his majestic and luminous depictions of the sublime, which are often saturated with a deep concern about social and environmental issues. His penetrating dark humor can transport the viewer to post-apocalyptic worlds and often offers a wry observation on how humans have altered the natural landscape.”

The two exhibitions also coincide with the release of Straus’ new monograph, published by Gli Ori, Italy, this month. Including text written by the artist and award-winning critic and filmmaker Amei Wallach, Adam Straus explores a range of topics, including the artist’s childhood experiences, fascinating moments in his life and career, and much more.
