Biography

Marina Adams (born 1960) utilizes a distinct palette of rich, saturated hues to create biomorphic forms that undulate and press together with pulsating energy. Sampling motifs from textile design, architecture, and postmodern poetry, as well as Moorish mosaics like the tessellated walls in the Alhambra palace in Grenada, Spain, Adams responds to color and form as she paints, resulting in a rhythmic relationship between the two. When speaking about her work, Adams has said that abstraction creates space for thought, rather than dictating it; it opens up the opportunity for experience.
