Artist’s Statement: “Color is the essential element in my work. The always square paintings are acrylic on canvas, combining spontaneous dry-brush techniques with flat, hard-edged shapes. Many of the objects which animate the edges are from my surroundings. They may include tracings of historical or familial items such as antique tools, keys, scissors, or shears. The tension built between the restful center and the active borders creates work that is bold, simple, and direct.”- S. Adam
