Bruce AdamsPicture of Haydee with Painting - Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, Puerto Rico
Bruce Adams is best known as a conceptually based figurative painter who references various (often historical) painting styles. In exploring the act of painting, Adams peels back the layers of meaning inherent in making and viewing art. Artist Statement: Like many artists whose productive lives have bridged the twentieth and twenty-first millennia—a period marked by rapid technological change as profound as the industrial revolution was to the modernists a century earlier—I often ponder the relevance of making paintings in an era of digitized imagery. Why communicate on canvas when every cell phone is a potential digital gallery? This question gains added significance in light of the modern proliferation of art reproductions in books, posters, postcards, and more recently in video, CDs, and on the Internet, all of which increase the likelihood that people will—more often than not—experience painting filtered through at least one layer of media. In addition, the widespread availability and acceptance of conventional and digital still and video cameras, and the “document everything” mindset they’ve spawned, have led to the common practice of recording art encountered firsthand for later viewing. This has contributed to a blurring of the distinction between paintings as discrete objects, and “paintings” as mass-produced reproductions.
