For The Time Being

Adam David Brown

“Scales of time rise and fall through the works on display in Adam David Brown’s exhibition. The slow shift of continents in 0 Degrees Latitude’s equatorial rocks. The steady accumulation, sampling, and questioning of knowledge in Core Sample: A Century. Days and months marked out in scraps of household paper, drifting clouds, the phases of the moon.” – Ruth Jones
