GR Gallery will open its doors to ‘Cerberus’, the first exhibition of Adam Lupton with the gallery and in New York. A total of 18 oil and acrylic paintings will be shown; this body of Lupton’s work grows out of his OCD, where performing mental and physical rituals, endlessly seeking assurance, and repeating mantras and projections make up his every day – mediating between himself and an unyielding “otherness”. Through this lens, the work weaves together individual and societal rituals, spiritual schizophrenia, and self-defining myth, thereby illuminating our various attempts at and desires for certainty.
