SAG HARBOR, NY - The Grenning Gallery is pleased to introduce the work of Adam Straus in the exhibition ONCOMING from March 17th through April 15, 2018. Straus is known for his majestic and luminous depictions of the sublime, which are often saturated with a 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. He has been represented by Nohra Haime Gallery in New York City, since 1990.
True to Grenning Gallery aesthetics, Straus is dedicated to a highly refined craft in his contemporary realist paintings, yet he overlays a deeply personal social commentary. Straus also merges his high level of craft with modern experimentation inspiring a dialogue on political, environmental, and sociological issues.
