Adam Parker Smith’s first solo exhibition in New York City. It was inspired by the execution scene in Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls. The heads are impaled on stakes or lying on the ground which is strewn with roses. As guilt, fascination and loyalty encroach, flawless heroines confront heart ache, fools distinguish beauty from the grotesque and the wretched mourn the loss of irreproachable purity.
