Installation: Edition of 5. This is 3 of 5. The first remains in the artist's collection and the second will be sold conceptually to an ownership group. Let's chat for details.

Particularly for the painting, I want my collectors to be absolutely thrilled. I work directly with you on mock-ups, dimensions, executions -- enamel on aluminum, mid-size vs. large-scale, inverse (white / black), more. 207-699-9957 / adam.daley.wilson [at] gmail for collaboration on ideas and mock-ups.

Prints: Possible; let's chat.

Pricing: Final price will depend on above variables; again, let's chat.

Notes for collectors:

-- My typical collectors are dynamic and visionary. They find the new artists and undiscovered works that will matter.

-- My bipolar 1 gives my works a rare substantive signature (I think and feel different) and a unique visual signature (I paint different -- my brushstrokes shake from the lithium).

-- I only execute a few major paintings each year. I didn't start until 2014, at age 42. I will likely make fewer than 50 major paintings in my lifetime.

-- Some of my collectors want to challenge contemporary art, including to reflect social justice. My works will be among those that redefine the cannon in this respect.

-- Some of my collectors intend their collections for future philanthropic giving. My works are particularly amenable to gifting to non-profit entities.

-- Some of my collectors do so to invest. Average acquisition price has increased from $750 (2014) to $3.5k (2015) to $10k + (2018). Serious collectors have started acquiring my oils. (2017, 2018). I have been invited to show installations in New York, which have attracted art critic and academic attention. (2018). I have been asked to join the board of a leading PhD program in art theory and philosophy for visual artists and creative scholars. (2019).

2019 pricing: ~ 5 x 4 ft mid-size oils, $10k; ~ 8 x 5 ft large-scale oils, $15-25k; Large-scale installs, $10-15k; Other (drawings, studies, video, limited prints), $1k to $10k. Pricing negotiable as is shipping, deadlines, more. To chat or for mock-ups: (207) 699-9957; adam.daley.wilson [at] gmail; adamdaleywilson.com (page for collectors).
