The Art of Joe Adams

Graphite Drawings, Water Colour on Paper and Oil on Canvas

Joe Adams explores nature based abstract constructs with unique gestural mark making.
Observations within our ocean's coastal tidal zone provide inspiration and focus.
Biomorphic entities evoking marine flora and fauna are rendered with geological textures and dramatic light.
Surrealistic environs exhibiting anthropogenic impact and the raw power of nature evolve on paper and canvas.
At the soul of each artwork, is the profound essence of music and dance.

Combining science and art is raising ecological awareness and dialog.
This dialog is igniting a collaborative process that supports environmental and educational issues.
Currently, Joe is creating art and working with artists, scientists and communities to develop these projects.
