Adrian Hobbs Biography

Adrian Hobbs acknowledges that chaos has historically been considered the inferior and the opposite of order but that a lot of contemporary thought, from mathematics to physics and philosophy, is now recognizing the essential role chaos plays in all existence. The artist’s works are observations on manifestations of chaos to both navigate and to liberate the unknown and its many interpretations. The departure for Adrian Hobbs’s paintings is an image from cinema - the final explosion scene in Zabriski Point, the cult seventies film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni where shattered fragments of property developers’ unwelcome incursions are flung into the spatial void over Death Valley like so much aerial flotsam and jetsam, prefacing either nihilism or nirvana.
