About Adam R Grose
Adam R. Grose's practice responds to contemporary practices inspired from the country, region, town or city he currently resides. He explores the experience of living and working in different places, researching the history, myth and culture of the area - observing entropy, environments, landscape and mapping through weathering, erosion, layering and time. Through these elements Adam explores the role of inter-connecting realities and the interplay between observation and imagination through painting, drawing, installation and sculpture, responding to the past and the effect on the present moment and its connection to our sense of identity. During research garnered in Cyprus and Spain, Adam is exploring ideas based on Zen and Pilgrimage: re-translating experiences into multi-layered drawings, paintings and alternative media (science-based) inspired by long meditative walks in the landscape; the exploration of history & myth and the relationship of inter-connecting cultures from the past and present in the contemporary age. The paintings and drawings explore form, pattern, rhythm, time through the movement of light and its effect on colours and tones - exploring the ways we see and respond to objects and its representation through mapping the particular reality.
