Christopher Adams, Primordial Garden S 3, Ceramic sculpture, 2015

2015

About

Christopher Adams creates richly varied series of abstracted biomorphic forms. Each piece grows out of an evolutionary process parallel to the science that informs his work. By continually recombining forms and experimenting with glazing beyond traditional ceramics practice, Christopher has created expanded the expressive possibilities for ceramic work. Creeping tendrils, twisted leaves, cartilaginous growths, and knotted rock shapes take form with a beautifully primordial presence. Adams made his public debut at the Scope New York art fair in March 2006, to rave reviews and a sold-out booth. In reviewing the fair, Ken Johnson of the New York Times described Christopher’s sculptures as “wonderfully delicate, spiky objects that look like specimens of underwater flora and fauna from another planet.” The artist was born in Medford, MA; graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College where he majored in organismic and evolutionary biology; and in 2004 graduated from Columbia University of Physicians and Surgeons.
