Adam Byrne

 

Some years ago Adam spent time in Tyumen in Siberia, which, like Liverpool, is a city built on a river. He recalled the hospitality of the people, the elegance of the buildings and the particular quality of the daylight as it shone on them. The rose motif used in the artwork, which repeats across the two Georgian windows of Adam's flat, is taken directly from the painted costume of his chosen object, a set of nestling Russian dolls. This stylised rose also appears in the tufted carpets made in the Tyumen region. The six texts on the lower window panes collectively identify, without naming, the city of Tyumen.
