A baptism, a drowning: When context is stripped, the vulgarity and violence of the ritual is exposed. Layers of dirt, sand, wax and paint energize the struggle between persons and submersion.” – Adam Lupton

Adam Lupton’s “Telos (The Drowning)” is a triumphant turn in his exploration of human ritual. In the first installment of the Sugarlift Masterwork Series on Saturday, February 23rd, hear the work decoded by the artist himself.

If you’ve ever hungrily searched a wall label for more details about an artist’s materials, process or even his psyche during a painting’s creation, Sugarlift Masterwork Series is for you. Each month, we get up close and personal with the artist behind the masterpiece.
