Cloud Gallery is pleased to present Adam Fung: constellation atlas June 9th through July 31st. Adam Fung is an Assistant Professor of Art at TCU in Fort Worth, TX and his current show uses painting as a questioning process to find patterns and draw boundaries around vastness, allowing forms to arise and recede. In this new body of work, Fung considers how painting can mimic our attempts to map the unknown, investigate the make up of the universe, and code such infinite matter.

With these paintings we find surfaces that are layered with information and shifting color relationships- alluding to a map in flux. Shapes form along grids or graphite delineations as these elements untangle and coalesce around quadrants of tentative certainty.  Ultimately, in constellation atlas, there is no claim to know the territory, rather a searching for where it may lie on future maps, in an ongoing cartography.

The opening reception will be held on Thursday, June 9th from 5 – 9 p.m.
Please join us for an artist reception on Thursday, July 14th from 5 – 9 p.m.

Adam Fung received his MFA from University of Notre Dame, in 2008.  He is currently completing an Arctic Circle Artist Residency and Summer Solstice Expedition in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, this year.

Fung has previously shown nationally and internationally at the Aron Packer Gallery, Button Gallery, Ro2 Art, Packer Schopf Gallery, Zolla/Lieberman Gallery, Hyde Park Art Center, South Bend Regional Museum of Art, Siena Art Institute, Link Gallery, Kent State University, The Snite Museum of Art, Lightwell Gallery, University of Oklahoma, Lucia Douglas Gallery, and the Washington Artists Project, Washington D.C. His work has received numerous awards and is included in many public and private collections.
