Terra Incognita Online Art Exhibition

October 10, 2014 was the opening of Adam’s art show “Terra Incognita” at Slow Culture Gallery in Los Angeles, CA.  Inspired by the past 2 years on the road with our family exploring Mexico, Central and South America, Adam’s new body of work consists of collage, photography, painting, drawing and mixed media.  He has worked from the “mobile studio” (as we have called the van) while in constant nomadic movement developing these new pieces.  From June to August 2014, our family lived on the island of Florionopolis, Brazil where we rented a small house & he transformed a bedroom into a studio.  When we flew to LA in August, he worked for another 2 months in his studio there to complete the show.

Latin for ‘unknown land’, terra incognita is a term used in cartography for regions that had not been explored or documented.  Drawing inspiration from geology, geography, cartography, and the rich cultural heritages of lands visited, Harteau’s experiences inspired a modern body of work uniquely his own.  During our travels, he has cataloged visual datum that he brings to life.  Neon colors pulled from urban walls sit in company with the rich tones of natural lands; deconstructed cartography appears alongside classic portraiture.  His creations include studies in geometry, explorations of nautical charts, ocean currents, and topographic forms.  A by-product of camping for most of the journey, Harteau’s work has been forged from the close connection he has experienced living with the land, sea, and sky.

There was a incredible turn out for the opening reception.

Thank you to all of you who came.  For those of you around the world that couldn’t make the show, here it is in it’s entirety!  High resolution details are available on the ‘click here for detail’ button.  If you are interested in purchasing art and would like further information, please email us here or contact@ouropenroad.com if you have any questions.  Enjoy!
