“I am an outsider-visionary artist of 17 years,” says Adam Wensil in describing himself. “My art has fondly been called ‘organized clutter’ in that I use ordinary objects in unexpected ways to create a new and memorable experience.”
Adam works in three areas: sculpture (the human figure), wire panels, and whimsy (fun, fast, anything goes), and his exhibition, Off Kilter (specifically referring to The Gilda House creation) is comprised of all three.
Gilda House has a dynamic, amazing story about five unique individuals and their loving pets who choose to share life together in the OFF KILTER world of Gilda House. A Pop Art expression, with architecture and furnishings inspired by Corbusier, and rich, Raphaelite colors, Adam constructed Gilda House from items given to him by strangers and friends. It is an art piece, not a dollhouse. The official music for Gilda House is “Imagine,” by John Lennon.
Diagnosed with bi-polar disease thirty years ago, Adam says, “My artwork is all about me and my interpretation of life, including my fears and phobias…. It is my expression through art that allows me to (be in) better control (of) my life.”
After 28 months of work, The Gilda House is still a work in progress. “My goal in art is always ‘completion not perfection.’” The Gilda House IS ADAM.
