Paige Adair is an artist living and working in Atlanta, GA. This is her first solo show in Atlanta and the first solo show presented by Eyedrum at the new location.

-------------------------------------------------

Her Artist Statement:
I am interested in the structure of narratives. Narratives have the power to transform any character, setting or action. I gravitate towards this act of transformation in storytelling. The moment when the damsel is transformed into an animal, when the protagonist is on a quest, or when the antagonist harms another are points of departure for my work. I like to isolate and examine these moments and the way the spread and alter received wisdoms. Illustrated animals, taxidermy specimens, and renaissance paintings are all source material used to build my fragmented narratives. The worlds I develop tend to be a dark, complex but humorous place.

This body of work is based on three Grimmís fairy tales with a common theme of transformation and supernatural acts of birds. Bits and pieces of the tales are pulled apart as if they were artifacts from the tales. A set of interiors explore the role of the femininity in relation to ownership and spaces. I compare the regulatory masculinity of architecture with the welcoming femininity of interiors. Dark undertones are laced with feathers and girly details to create a portal to view fantasy worlds that parallel our own.
