Adam Gabriel Winnie is a trans-diciplinary artist and recent graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design. Adam was born in 1981 in Wayne, Michigan to a working class family. After setting out on his own at the age of 17 and moving around the state, Adam settled in Ann Arbor, Michigan. His first solo exhibition, 'Segments, Squares, Orange' premiered at the Dreamland Theater in 2003 and since then he has held 9 other solo exhibits and has been in over 20 group shows.

During his time in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Adam studied photography and welding at Washtenaw Community College. During this period he recognized the cultural importance of promoting the arts within the community and founded student organizations, curated exhibitions, co-founded 'Natural Canvas”, a local art and music venue and was president and cofounder of Atomic Art Cooperative, a local nonprofit arts organization.

Adam's early work began as a critique on sociopolitical issues which threatened humanist tendencies. These raw, anti-authoritarian works took on the forms of complex assemblages and multimedia installations. As his interest in integrating processes evolved, he began work on what would be a 7 year year project incorporating glass photographs into sculptures. These works explored existential struggles which result from the search for personal identity amidst external influences. Adam's current body of figurative paintings and drawings explore issues concerning our contemporary human condition.

'My paintings are open narratives which operate as existent features of inevitable personal and private conflicts. The protagonists of these works exist within staged situations which visually define, through personal experience and social precedence, the inescapability of drama and our essential illness. There are no beginnings or endings, no solutions are offered and no utopia is alluded to. Rather, they question what it is that makes us who we are and take into account the inherent presence of confirmation bias which distorts cognition differently from person to person. Through ambiguity and a sense of melancholy the resulting allegories demonstrate the failure of words to adequately communicate and the unbreachable nature of the private experience.' -Adam Gabriel Winnie
