Tom Adair covers Good Weekend's "52 Weekends Away" — SMH and The Age

16 November 2020

Weekender is a small exhibition of paintings that speak of hope. Created during lockdown by Melbourne artist Tom Adair, Weekender reminds us of the joy of living in this country. From the beach and the rock pools to the riverbanks of the interior, our relationship to water is intrinsic and it is egalitarian.

Weekender, for me, became an escape from the twisted reality; a real-life ground hog day. Limited from my practice and regular process of even photography, I purchased a camera and sent it to friends in places that had the freedom to live. Through technology, I directed and collaborated with them to experience, vicariously, their release from the asphyxiation of imposed restrictions. – Tom Adair.

Weekender was featured on the cover of the Good Weekend's 52 Weekends Away issue in the SMH and The Age, 14–15 November. The painting is  part of a new series of works by the artist which will be on show in the N\H Project Space from 18-21 November.
