Final Friday marks opening day for an exhibition of new black and white paintings by artist Josh Adams. From the artist's statement:
"These paintings examine the spatial and emotional relationships between facial features and expressions of multiple stacked portraits. Each work is an amalgamation of two or more images of one person.Thoughtfully positioned, the faces dissolve into one another. Their union develops subtle disturbances of clarity and coherence, while seeming to invent one creature of new feeling.
I chose black and white to keep the focus on form and value. Furthermore, I employed a variety of mark making to stimulate the surface and draw attention to processto yield a sense of transparency, motion and life."
