Imaginarium: Works by Adam Knapper

Imaginarium: Works by Adam Knapper

Imaginarium gives precedence to Knapper’s unique and subjective vision.   Knapper’s aim is to question the relevance of knowing the details of an artist’s diagnosis in understanding the works created by those experiencing mental illness.

Spanning the last twenty-five years, Knapper’s body of work includes painting, illustration and street art.  He draws inspiration from a broad range of sources including Surrealism, Pop Art, music and film. This exhibition invites viewers to be guided by their imagination, reflecting Knapper’s desire to create a whimsical playground of intersecting ideas and motifs.

Imaginarium is the third in The Dax Centre’s program of solo exhibitions, which brings focus to the work of certain artists whose practice raises issues of particular significance within the field of art in mental health.
