Adam Sorensen’s work explores the landscape as subject and depicts the natural world with an intellectual remove. His dark otherworldly scenes suggest the lonely contemplation of overwhelming beauty. Sorensen’s work has been exhibited as part of the Portland Art Museum’s 2011 APEX Project Space series, in Los Angeles as part of “High Five: Emerging Art in America,” in the Portland Art Museum’s 2003 Biennial as well as the “Core Sample” exhibition of that year. He was selected as one of ten artists for the annual young painters competition at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and was recently featured in New American Paintings. His work has been exhibited throughout the Northwest. Sorensen is currently represented by PDX Contemporary in Portland, Oregon, and James Harris Gallery in Seattle, Washington. An exhibition of new paintings is currently on view at PDX Contemporary Art.
