Here is what Adam has to say
1.Tell me about your work? Talk about the show and what you are trying to say.
The concentration for my work is Emotional Exhaustion. I'm exploring the idea centering around a chronic state of physical and emotional depletion resulting from excessive and continuous stress. It describes a feeling of being emotionally overextended and exhausted by ones work, thoughts, and feelings. It is manifested by both physical and mental fatigue and a sense of feeling psychologically and emotionally drained. My paintings are gestural and figurative, exploring the gestures that help portray a feeling of absolute languor and listlessness. I paint nude figures, leaving them vulnerable to the eye and thoughts of the viewer, with no distinct identities to stay clear away from specifics other than gender; my hopes are that this will able the viewer to relate without feeling like they are looking at a painting of someone else but rather themselves in a different perspective; relativity between my artwork and the viewer is extremely important to me.
2.What or who influences you and why create what you create.
My influence as an artist are my thoughts and observations. The way and things I feel are how it is how I am able to create what I create. I am passionate about the human mind and figure; the idea that the body works cohesively with the way the mind is feeling. My curiosity to understand this is what fuels my passion to paint.
3. What are you working on now?
I am currently working on a large 80"x60" diptych painting in the same concentration, this painting is about unity with the figures.
