Unnerving yet engrossing, Adele Underwood’s eye- catching paintings aim to reveal common truths for all humanity.
Her paintings are essentially narrative and whilst eternally seeking meanings, her conclusions are never forced. Instead she intends for the viewer to draw out their own personal messages from her intriguing works.
The latest body of work engages you with a somewhat sensitive concept: burgeoning sexuality. She symbolises the difficulty and confusion that many of us contend with, particularly during adolescence, through the inclusion of animal masks and faces within her images.
Whilst on initial appearance Adele’s creations may seem humorous, the longer spent engaging with them, the more unsettling elements slowly become apparent.
