Juxtapoz recently sat down with Adam to discuss his daily antics and process for his upcoming show at Guerrero Gallery. Hannah Stouffer in conversation with Adam Feibelman:
Hannah Stouffer: Hey Adam, what are you wearing?
Adam Feibelman: I am currently topless in my hot summer time studio. I do have bottoms on, though, which are jeans.
HS Tell me about your process for your upcoming show 'Do With Me What You Will' at Guerrero Gallery- how long did the series take for you to put together? How do you feel your work has evolved at this point from exhibitions in the past??
AF About a year ago, Andres from Guerrero Gallery approached me with the opportunity, knowing that my work takes a long time to make. I think he wanted to give me some elbow room, time to fully realize an idea, and fill such a large space; so, I have been working on this series for a year. In terms of evolution, the large amount of time let me try new things, ideas for techniques were put into practice. It afforded me the time to really sink into some personally ambitious work, like a view of looking up at redwood trees that took seven months to cut. They are called "The Love Songs."
HS Do you typically show both the paper stencil and the final, layered painting?
AF Yes, a couple of years ago it started to become clear to me that people who were looking at the paintings weren't fully understanding of the process; I felt there needed to be another level of deconstruction. That is when I started cutting apart, collaging, and sewing back together the "tools" (stencils). I felt that it was the best next step for me.
