Make Lighter of all the Heavier

25x32in Oil Painting on Canvas Completed in 2020. The work Adam produces comes from a pure and vulnerable place. He is deeply inspired by the music he listens to and the movements that come out of this. Regarding his paintings, he utilizes calligraphy pens and oil paint during this process. His process would be considered "stream of consciousness" or "jazz painting". This painting was completed during the Coronavirus pandemic while in lockdown in my apartment. This painting shows the duality of my emotions at the time. This duality of light and shadow shows up throughout many of my works.

STATEMENT

The work Adam produces comes from a pure and vulnerable place. He is deeply inspired by the music he listens to and the movements that come out of this. Regarding his paintings, he utilizes calligraphy pens and oil paint during this process. His process would be considered "stream of consciousness" or "jazz painting". He incorporates the emotions he is feeling during the time of creation using the emotional aspect of color and the rigidness of the black calligraphy pen. The themes surrounding his paintings include connection, spirituality, and love. Regarding Adam's photos, each one is similar to a painting, as colors compliment the chosen manipulated subject. Formulated with a dreamy atmosphere these photos produce an awe-inspiring nostalgia for the viewer. The mystic nature of Adam’s style moves the audience to feel its strength, providing a window into the heart of its creator. These crafted pieces carry a moral and spiritual dimension standing for simplicity and connection.
