About

Bruce Adams often references historical painting themes and styles in order to throw into relief western tropes in figurative art. Here as part of the artist's series Myths and Lies, Adams depicts the Greek goddess of Vengence.

Mythology and allegory are the launching pads for the artists paintings, but a variety of topics, including notions of beauty and gender, are the actual content. The mythical figures are real people, friends and acquaintances who volunteer as subjects.
