The Wall Gallery is arguably the least accommodating space among the galleries located around Telegraph Avenue and 25th Street. In fact, it’s actually more of a hallway. But don’t let its narrowness deceive you into thinking that its shows are insignificant. For the month of July, The Wall is featuring the thought-provoking work of abstract painter Adam Cardello: The Meaning of Life is a collection of five large, square paintings that depict the cycle of life. According to Cardello’s artist’s statement, the series was a way for him to weave a narrative out of two life-changing events — the birth of his daughter and the death of his close friend. The resulting story is a dynamic manipulation of color, pattern, and geometry into effervescent pictorial metaphor. By overlapping thin layers of paint, Cardello achieves a fogginess that adds crucial depth to his dreamy pieces, drawing the viewer in. Actually, a space of transition like a hallway may be the perfect place to view The Meaning of Life because it relates the same message as the work: We’re all just passing through.
