Milwaukee-born artist Adam Beris creates minimalist paintings of figurative subjects using colorful blobs of paint. Beris will soon present a new body of work — developed over the past year — at Hong Kong’s Over The Influence Gallery. Titled “Daisy Chain,” the artist created grid-like compositions that focus on repetition and pattern, portraying “a chain of humans and objects working with and against each other,” as per a statement.

Across several of the works, the artist placed his characters with neon-toned features beside various symbols such as the moon or tennis balls in vivid groupings that evoke a childlike collection of emoticons. “Compiled into organized patterns, the symbols
elicit the natural human impulse of categorization and satisfy the compulsion for titles, groupings, and class systems to differentiate ourselves and our worth,” as per a statement.

View select works above and then visit Over The Influence Hong Kong’s website for further details. “Daisy Chain” will run through October 11 to November 9.
