Adrian Waggoner creates dynamic compositions by juxtaposing relatively large and flat shapes with figures. His paintings owe their depth to his textures and harmonious color combinations rather than colors individually, he says.
The simplicity of his work is intended to allow the viewer to interact with it, through the tension between two figures or of a single figure and its environment. Waggoner does this deliberately, since he wants for the viewer to bring a variable set of details to the work. His paintings are intended as a proxy for present condition.
