Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Continuing my Encounter series, I decided to use a deep burgundy red contrasted with the black of a glove.

I composed this piece during the Obon holidays, which is the Japanese Day of the Dead. It's a day when ancestors' spirits come back to visit family. You can see offerings like fruit, sake, and snacks set out for their visit.
It's also a time to visit family graves and rather than being a somber holiday it's more of a cheerful celebration of life.

Artist Profile

Born: 1991

Hometown: Washington, DC

Based in: Japan

Adam Norgaard (b. 1991) is an American artist working in Japan for the past 7 years. His works reflect the process of adapting to a culture different from his own. Attracted to Japanese culture from a young age, he decided to relocate there soon after graduation. Working with oils as his main medium, he remains playful while also maintaining a finished quality. Adam attempts to bring the viewers into a foreign environment of their own by the atmosphere depicted in his paintings. In his own practice he is working at deviating from references and attempting to work completely from his imagination.
