Adam Jaye Porter

Lecturer in Art+Design

Adam’s work is a confluence of aggregate fantasies, altered materials from LGBTQ archives, and reflections of distorted desires. The final image is arrived at through chance and revision; a series of responses to initial marks, appropriated images, glitched materials, and welcomed happenstance. Working through multiple media, a disarray of visual information is synthesized together, put through filters of drawing, digital media, traditional printmaking and new-media fabrication. He strives to create images that reframe gritty nightlife aesthetics, a serene pandemonium where linear narrative dissolves and abstraction solidifies. Elements culled from defunct gay bars, optical patterns, and digital moires create political and phenomenological effects blending history and fantasy together.
