Adnarn’s artist journey commenced over six years ago beginning in earnest attending art sessions at the Burton Street Foundation. This is where he developed his practice in Art Skills and Articulate sessions. As a dedicated practitioner, Adnarn not only established himself as an artist but also developed his most confident assured identity through independent, self-directed art production. Adnarn’s artworks serve as expressions of his individual artistic style and development of self-awareness and self-confidence.
While he has been a part of the Burton Street Foundation for many years, Adnarn is now establishing himself with his own independent art practice nested and nurtured in the Burton Street Foundations support network.
Adnarn’s artistic repertoire encompasses various techniques, including drawing, rubbing, cardboard, collage, and Papier-mâché. Through his art, he delves into themes of connection, joy, and community. Each piece is a reflection of Adnarn’s unique perspective and the evolution of his artistic voice.
As Adnarn embraces different art practices, his “Solo” exhibition becomes an opportunity for the audience to engage with the diversity of his work. The exploration of mediums and themes demonstrates Adnarn’s commitment to his art over many years and his achievement of connecting with others through the language of art.
Visitors are invited to witness Adnarn’s journey, from his roots at Burton Street Foundation to the establishment of his independent artistic identity and his significant body of work.
Burton Street Art Session Ethos
Art is a form of self-expression unique to each individual. In engaging with a piece of art, the artist is communicating something of their very being, giving us an insight in to the way that they view and engage with the world.
For many of those who attend Burton Street articulating feelings and communicating emotions presents its own particular challenges. Art therefore, along with other forms of creative expression, is an opportunity for people to do just that. To show us that verbal communication
is just one form of communication and often a very limited one at that.
We support our clients to go on their own artistic journeys and encourage them to have their voice in many forms.
Adnarn’s body of work is a testament to overcoming challenges through commitment to a passion. Adnarn is a great example of what can happen when you focus on your abilities rather than your limitations.
The exhibition will run from February 1st to February 28th 2024 at The Circle gallery space located on Rockingham Lane in Sheffield. Entry to view the exhibition is free for all visitors.
