In Adam Giroux’s cerebral oil portraits, the painter uses ornamentation and extraction around his subjects. “Motivation” is a major theme in his work, exploring how one navigates the strange world we inhabit. He uses both realism and touches of abstraction in this work.
“My work explores the boundaries of identity and the obsession with self-improvement,” the artist has said. “I have become interested in exploring the thought-patterns and behaviours associated with personal advancement. Haunting oil portraits of cryptic characters elaborate on the themes of restraint and growth as I progress in my own life in parallel.”
