About

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: I often reference historical painting themes and styles in order to throw into relief western tropes in figurative art. Certain conventions reoccur with such regularity throughout history that they can be seen as cultural memes that cut across religious, mythical, and secular themes. Other conventions are closely linked to a particular time and place. Mythology and allegory are artistic contrivances that act as mirrors, reflecting ideals and social mores throughout history. It’s still going on. Google any god or goddess and along with historical art up pops contemporary illustrations reflecting the cultural tropes of today.
