I've recently came across the artwork of Canadian artist Adam Lupton (thank you, Tumblr!). His oil paintings splintered and shattered layers of reality and blurred the lines of time and space. I see his works as a very peculiar concept of portraiture, like a parallel stream of conscience where realism clashes with a vague sense of dissociation and emotional depth. Almost like a broken mirror reflection seen through the cracks. Lupton was born in Vancouver, graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2010 and is currently completing his Master of Fine Arts at the New York Academy of Art.
