Biography: When I first started painting over 15 years ago, I found myself split between photorealism and abstraction. Back then, my paintings where either abstract or photorealistic. Within a couple of years this resolved into the patterns of colored shapes that you now see depicting the scenes in my paintings. Up close, my paintings dissolve into an abstraction of colored shapes. From a distance they look almost photorealistic. As an artist, this method is both challenging and satisfying. I've heard numerous interpretations and reviews of my work over the years: "The shapes that construct the scenes in Craig Adair's paintings are akin to pixels on a monitor." "In an increasingly depersonalized world, this artist shows that you can't get too close without losing focus of the big picture." "Neither photorealism nor abstraction can be considered contemporary by today's standards and Adair's work negates them both by forcing them to live in the same painting." "If Seurat, Pollock and Estes duked it out, this might be the result."
