“The sea, the whip and weave of waves. I feel them run through my mind, my body, as if my heart is just another shell tugged in the tides.”

Plot Hooks

The Ocean/The Sea:
Adeline spends a LOT of time in, near and around the sea – or researching it in Oceanography library holdings. Anybody working with the sea, with boats, with surfing, or with marine biology, will be fascinating to her.

The Street:
Adeline can be found frequenting dealers in certain forms of narcotics ...

The University:
Adeline is a postdoctoral fellow who has come to UC Prospect as part of an interdisciplinary, multi-year Physical Oceanography project. As part of this multimillion dollar project, certain postdoctoral fellows have been hired to communicate and express research through a range of media, including art.

Art:
Adeline Llyr is far from widely famous, but her artwork is definitely known among a select cognoscenti: specifically, people who are passionate about emerging figures in contemporary British art, and who have a taste for the uncanny and strange. She was featured in an exhibition on young Welsh artists in 2014, was long listed for the prestigious British Turner prize in 2018, and shortly before she came to Prospect her work was included in a Tate Modern exhibition "Strange Seas".




Adeline Llyr


Scarlet hair cascades around a face of sharp fragility: high cheekbones and wide grey eyes, bone structure as strong and delicate as driftwood. Against her pallor, her hair stands out: startling red, loose past her shoulder blades, bright as fire, as love, as a warning. She's small and slender, 5'4", and looks to be in her mid to late 20s. Her long-fingered pale hands flutter, always pushing the hair back from her face, and her expression speaks of sweetness and something stranger. Her lilting accent is not American.

She wears a black silk shift dress and black sandals, straps twining up bare calves, and mis-matched gloves, her right fingerless lace and the left full-fingered silk. Her jacket is navy leather, the back decorated with strange, white, abstract patterns - seaweed, fish, octopi - a bizarre heraldry of undersea.





TIME OUT LONDON Art Review, Strange Seas, Tate Modern, 2019


“ … yet the strangest contributor to the exhibition is without question that by Adeline Llyr, the young Welsh artist honoured a few years ago by reaching the long list of the Turner Prize. Her work has only grown more uncanny since. There is no understating the ferocity and strangeness of her undersea images. Vivid and haunting, her massive-scale canvases overwhelm the human perceiver. The sea in sunlight, the sea at night, tumultuous waves, deep quiet caverns — and most striking of all, the midnight darkness of the Bathypelagic Zone.”
