A baptism, a drowning: When context is stripped, the vulgarity and violence of the ritual is exposed. Layers of dirt, sand, wax and paint energize the struggle between persons and submersion. - Adam Lupton

Adam Lupton’s “Telos (The Drowning)” is a triumphant turn in his exploration of human ritual and the first installment of the Sugarlift Masterwork Series.

We spend 28.63 seconds on average looking at a work of art. Sugarlift's Masterwork Series seeks to break through the attention deficit by presenting one painting by one artist per month, getting up close and personal with the artist behind the masterpiece.
