Adi Da Samraj (New York, 1939 – Fiji, 2008) created art for more than forty years. His earliest photographs date from the early 1960s and in the late 1990s he entered into an intensive period of photographic work, featuring extraordinarily sophisticated multiple exposures. Quandra Loka – a suite of interrelated photographs with a single overarching subject matter – was created by Adi Da in 2002-2003. Quandra Loka represents the pinnacle of Adi Da’s photographic method. Almost all of the images in this suite are complex multiple exposures, typically involving more than two (and even as many as ten or more) superimposed layers. He created each of these multi-exposed images entirely in camera, mostly underwater, without the use of artificial lighting and the aid of any digital or darkroom manipulation. As a result, his works are of a contemplative and enigmatic character. Adi Da’s art was featured as an official solo exhibition at the 2007 Venice Biennale and since his participation the late American-born artist has commanded a large international following. The solo exhibition at Galerie Pien Rademakers (24 May - 29 June, 2014) marks the European premiere of images from the color Quandra Loka suite.
