"My work is about understanding the complexities of people, both as individuals and as societies.  We are all the product of mixing and matching over eons, despite any specific identity to which we attach ourselves. In a world driven by technology, instant communication further blurs the lines between viewpoints, causes, social orders and cultures. It allows us to observe and experience things far beyond the confines of our immediate environment. I believe that humankind, much like the physical environment, is a continuum of changing features.  Ultimately those influences from afar seep into our being and shape our relationship to the world."

Last Weekend!!
John M. Adams / Finding Zero
January 6 through February 27

John M. Adams' work activates the perceptual connection between artist, object (or environment), and viewer. The paintings reflect a meditative process of repetitive mark making through the transparent layers of subtle atmospheric and textured surfaces. These chaotic marks are juxtaposed with the structure of a regulated rhythm of horizontal lines.  The combination resonates with a quiet vibration that propels the viewer into an image whose color scheme and composition remain ambiguously familiar, as if from an incomplete memory that is nonetheless vivid.

Ruth Trevarrow / Bare Bones
