My friend and fellow artist Amanda turned me on to the work of Adam Weir. Using gouache and watercolor, he paints disjointed environments. His statement:

Through works on paper, I explore ideas of displacement, consumption, and the environments in which we live. By combining everyday experience, nostalgia, and urban visual cues I create absurd constructions within my paintings to try and understand the complex interactions between people, spaces, and things. Recognizable imagery surrounded by a vast expanse of white creates a dreamlike space that may or may not exist. The placement of such quotidian objects in unnatural or fantastic situations questions the reality of the world in which they reside.
