Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer by Adam Lister
“My process deals with taking the memory of an image, and highlighting its complexity and simplicity at the same time. These paintings are influenced by geometric thinking and a desire to capture the briefness of a mental picture.”
– Adam Lister
Based on the reinterpretations of iconic paintings of women from art history, Lister breaks down classic portraits to his signature flat, cubist-like, 8-bit-esque compositions through depicting them through his memory, then lets his audience analyze the images’ complexities and similarities at the same time.
