Lake Views – a major solo exhibition from Luke Adams
LUKE ADAMS WRITES: Spending quality time in my hometown suburb of Speers Point offered some expedient creative reflection. The residency allowed me to rediscover my own personal foundations within local landscapes and suburban streets. I also brought my own broader cultural knowledge to re-evaluate key signifiers of local identity. Many aspects of the artworks in this exhibition reference my experiences of growing-up near the lake and considers how these experiences have shaped me as an adult. I feel this project is a key milestone in my development as an artist. I hope that those who live near ‘the lake’, see something of themselves and their own culture within it.’
