Artist Spotlight: Adam Normandin

A selection of paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Adam Normandin. Best known for his depictions of freight trains, graffiti and the American landscape, Normandin is inspired by the discovery of unnoticed or overlooked details. His paintings explore vacant places, often found beyond the periphery of conventional locations. Normandin’s process begins with photography, but the final painting may only vaguely resemble the reference as he is more interested in the feelings of a subject rather than their faithful representation:

“I like things battered by use, overlooked or abandoned. Seemingly ordinary subjects become transformed with time and use into objects rich with purpose, dignity and embody a unique sense of history.”
