Carolyn Adams Biography

Artist's Statement

For years I have studied and experimented with the Imprimatura technique of the Old Masters. Consequently, I have developed a glazing process which serves as a means to achieve the desired results in my artwork. As an artist I am concerned with concepts of space and its relationship to the extremities of chiaroscuro and color intensity. I strive to find a statement of balance and awareness, a balance between craftsmanship and spirituality. My subject matter varies between the abstract and realism. I use realism as a vehicle to be changed, rearranged, or improvised upon in an attempt to find a new definition of harmony. My abstracts are a search for new meanings into the ultimate truth and purity of our souls. I search for integrity and spirituality in my artwork. I believe in Art and its purpose in life. It is my ultimate goal to create a thing of beauty.
