Sculpture: LED, Wood on Wood.
Initially inspired by Unique Forms of Continuity in Space
- a sculpture by Umberto Boccioni, Adam also draws references from the simplicity of the works by Constantin Brancusi and the curvature often used by Marc Chagall. The use of repetitive marks, organic shapes and a geometric rhythm intentionally strives to emulate the marks made in impressionist paintings and also seen regularly seen in the relationship been numerical patterns and nature.
The is an innate ambiguity in the marriage between the abstraction of the final piece and the viewers' perception of what they see. While it can be easy to draw comparisons to the natural elements of fire and water, there is a strong influence on the form from how the light interacts with light.
While it is rarely used when looking at art works, the use of the haptic sense is highly recommended. The tactile and smooth marks infer a sensuality that is relevant to the viewers' experience, while creating marks of a similar width to the human finger is also designed to stimulate the desire to touch and physically interact with the pieces. The closeness of shape/size between that of the carved shapes and the size of human figures is intentional with a view to encourage interaction.
The use of a natural material such as Philippine Mahogany also refers to the natural earth elemental.
