Adam Sime was taught his practice by his father Ian Sime, a Melbourne based non-objective painter of the 50’s and 60’s. Along with instruction in the use of egg tempera, thixotropic gel and anarchist theory, Sime senior instructed his son to avoid the path of art school, group shows and grants, and instead find other means of supporting himself while living a creative life.
Following his father’s advice, Adam Sime maintained a studio and exhibited in ‘street’ and ‘public’ spaces, then later in self-managed non-commercial exhibition areas. He has worked with posters, self adhesive images (excellent for public spaces) and canvas based work. This will be his first exhibition in a commercial gallery.
