Adam Cable

Ridgewood, NY, USA


American,   —   Adam Cable pictures queer domesticity by constructing semi-photographic scenes using found digital images, building narratives that speak to lived experiences and encounters. His work breaks pictorial depictions of American homes into component shapes while applying keyword-sourced materials to their surfaces, creating a visual cacophony within sharply edged forms. These compositions shift between collage, lens-based pictures, and semiotics, symbolizing the complex negotiations with social and cultural mores taking place moment by moment in everyday spaces. Cable’s work questions the notion of “home” as a blank slate by reframing these interiors as ideological conduits which encourage certain behaviors, reject others, and define acceptability. Visually layering emotional and associative concepts within and about these spaces, these intimate sites underline the power relations infused into seemingly passive structures. Adam Cable has shown in several group and solo exhibitions, including at the University of North Carolina, Asheville; PULSE Art Fair, Miami; Local Project, NYC; and The Plaxall Gallery, NYC. He was named a semi-finalist in The Print Center's 95th ANNUAL International Competition (Philadelphia). In 2021, he co-curated an exhibition with Float Photo Magazine and was included in Secrets of the Friendly Woods, a book by The Wassaic Project. Cable holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts (2017) and a BFA from the University of North Carolina, Asheville (2013). He lives and works in Queens NY.
