Artist of the Month: Brian Patrick Adams
Hello, July and welcome to Summer!
Along with welcoming in the warm weather, we are also greeting local mixed media artist, Brian Patrick Adams, to our office. Starting July 1st, you can see his eclectic and nostalgic pieces throughout the month. As always, we are opening our door on July 6th from 5 pm to 7 pm. Please come hang out with us in our office at 34 South Street, Jamaica Plain to chat, view Brian's work, and enjoy the lazy summer evening.
"I've always been drawn to telling visual stories with the use of collage and mixed media. My process consists of combining and assembling multiple disciplines and mediums within the same piece while playing with the relationship between 2 and 3 dimensions. My materials include, but are not limited to oil, acrylic, photo transfer, polymer resin, fabric paper, wood & found objects.
These images are imagined stories which are based on narratives that I have created using religious, mythic, & historical icons as well as found and self-assembled characters & objects. My inspiration comes from several sources; sometimes from a potential title, sometimes from a collage pattern that I have created and at other times from a found object or a hybrid I have assembled. My goal is to create pieces that feel seamless while combining several mediums."
