David Adams (1950 - )

David Adams grew up in the wonderous desert regions of the western Rocky Mountains.  As a child he lived in southeastern Washington and later moved to northern New Mexico where he completed school and where he parents still reside. 

Adams has always enjoyed the outdoors and spent much time playing team sports, hiking, fishing and camping. He still enjoys gardening and other outdoor activities here in the vast and varied landscape of Utah. These interests, along with a love of music and science, compose the influences that inform and drive his art works.

The images Adams creates are primarily composed of human (organic) and elemental/place (inorganic) forms. In the paintings , human forms occur as more or less organized, recognizably complete figures existing in multi-layered, free form abstraction. He tries to show the viewer a picture of passing experience, sometiems within the context of landscape.  Adams' sculptures continue these concepts of composite figures, but often involve a created place and forms withing an environment context.

Adams find this search an exhilarating way to explore and experience life and hopes that the work strikes a note of recognition with everyone.
