The Baldwin Gallery is proud to present its third show of new works by acclaimed contemporary artist Adam Fuss. The body of work titled For Allegra continues the underlying biographical disposition of his work. For Allegra is an elegy for a failed relationship and an artistic meditation on the loss of love. Fuss reflects on his emotions and builds up a series of images which may appear to be random but are metaphors for love that cannot be possessed. The overall effect is akin to a palimpsest of shared moments which coalesce to conjure up a haunting record of what is a universal experience.
