“Now Look Here” is a one painting exhibition by Adam Winner. The painting, traditionally executed in oil, hung at a standard height, and representing the space in which it is hung, as well as itself, as well as the viewer, is an experiment in the subjective nature of perception.

Hung facing into the shallow space of the Engineer’s Office, a casual passer-by will see only the backside of the painting. That it is a stretched canvas will imply an invitation to step under and into the gallery space itself, where the abstracted and fanciful depiction of the space will be dimly visible in the low-light of the interior. While one is engaged in the act of viewing the picture, one has also become a performer in the piece, completing the picture and adding a layer of content for concurrent passers-by. Operating within its own metaphysical logic, the painting presents metaphorical depictions of floor as flowing river, wall as slice of celestial sphere, and tightly confined alcove as infinite landscape. The image acknowledges the existence of the multiverse, and questions where or if one place, object, or space ends, and allows for and encourages multiple and fluctuating perceptions.
