“An exciting collection of new works by pop art duo Adrian + Shane, which explores our obsession with social networks and the creation of unrealistic online characters.
Remove imperfections, add filters, hide any unpleasant reality. Introducing a perfect plastic version of ourselves.
They all wear a mask. Online you can be who you want: “Public figure”, “Model”, “Influencer”, “Celebrity”, “Pop star”.
We are living in our devices, through our devices. Our online person is now consuming us.
The boundaries between the real and the false have vanished.
If nobody is looking at us, are we real? ”
Adrian + Shane are two artists who work together as one since 1998. Using paint, collage, stencils, photos and videos to create what is, without a doubt, pop art. Much of his work includes the self-portrait. Many pieces are loaded with fresh and well-directed social commentary.
The colorful works address common themes that include the family and sexuality and also touch our exacerbation with the daily routine, feelings of confusion, loss and lack of personal identity.
First they exhibited in 1999 and since then Adrian + Shane has had many solo exhibitions and successful groups in Ireland and abroad. His work has appeared in numerous publications around the world.
Adrian + Shane are currently working on a collection of new jobs.
