It’s a love affair that began in his grandfather’s workshop. When Adam Colangelo first experimented with scraps of copper during his formative years, he had no way of knowing that the medium would deeply impact his life. In the years since, he has found promise in this extremely versatile material.
Colangelo’s large-scale compositions speak to his understanding of copper and his interests in challenging the way we view and interpret two-dimensional art. By employing diverse techniques, he presents an array of patinas and finishes so rich in detail, each small segment of his compositions offers its own earthy abstraction.
Colangelo’s signature design elements present a fusion between the geometric and organic. His living, breathing landscapes simultaneously include visual references to the world, while being rooted in grid-like abstraction. The dynamic quality of his work is a nod to an existentialist belief that, like the artist's self-discovered style, we are free to determine our own relationship to the external world.
Colangelo has exhibited works in Toronto, Whistler, New York, Chicago, PalmBeach, and Tokyo. His work has been purchased for private and corporate collections in the United States and Canada.
