About

A contemporary expressionist painting by American artist Bruce Adams from the artist's Extemporal Suite which was recently exhibited at Artpark in Lewiston, NY. This work comes framed in an archival natural wood frame presentation. The size on the wall is 20" (h) x 16" (w) Artist Statement: The process for the works here is similar. The title comes from the Latin extemporalis, meaning on the spur of the moment, or less literally, unrehearsed. When I go to my studio, before working on more extended paintings, I “warm up” by doing one or more complete improvised works. I keep a collection of images that I find interesting for a variety of reasons, and from these I select one or two intuitively in a very limited time, usually a minute or less. Sometimes I use single images, other times two, responding to associations the pairings create. Then I begin painting without pre-drawing or conscious thought. Colors are selected spontaneously. As I paint I respond to the work in progress making changes as needed, allowing the painting to develop organically.
