  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Pigmented beeswax, oil and collage on wood panel.

    This painting is part of a series titled (r)evolution made between 2014 and 2015. It is the second iteration of a series of “dot” paintings begun in 2006.

    This process-based series was inspired by Adams ongoing interest in music and music theory. It is about pattern, rhythm, and intervals of notes as exemplified by the choice and placement of color.

    Adams has been intrigued by math and serial systems since her days of graduate school at New England Conservatory (Boston, Massachusetts) when John Cage was composer in residence at Harvard University.

    For this series, she has painted with many layers of encaustic and mounted hand cut circles of Japanese paper which have been dipped in encaustic.

    Finally, each dot/circle is covered with clear encaustic medium, then painted with oil to create spatial depth.

Tracey Adams

United States Born in: 1954 Emergent Artist
Tracey Adams is an American abstract painter and engraver. She currently lives and works in Carmel, California. Adams got a Barchelor's Degree from the Mount St. Mary College in Los Angeles in 1978. She studied engraving and painting at the School of Fine Arts of Boston from 1979 to 1981 and obtained a Master's Degree at the Consevatory of Music of New England in 1980. She has received several scholarships for her studies (including an scholarship by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation in 2015).

Her pieces rely on the musical structure, rhythm and composition. Her choice of colors speaks to her personal environment..... the light of the water, the capacity of supressing the fog, the colors of the setting sun and the palette of the lush local flora are found in her work. While she was still a student, Adams often had the opportunity of working with composer and artist John Cage, who has strongly influence her work. She says her work tries to capture the calm and beauty of an environment that she will like to be part of.

Her work reflects a strong interest on musical motifs, rhythms, elements of lyrical composition and what she calls a sense of performance. Adams works on paper and boards, using a combination of paint, encaustic and graphite as well as elements of monotype and collage. Her creative process requires a lot of planning and intuition. She often starts a piece or a collection like an exact mathematical formula, by planning the details of the composition in advance. Other times, she starts by making a grid structure and then works on this structure, adding organic gestures, performative and very expressive brush strokes. The final result is often, a mixture of her original idea and her instinct, creating a composition that captures the essense of the harmony of mind and emotion.

Adams has exhibited her work a lot in solo and group exhibitions in the United States. Adams' work is part of permanent collections of several museums, such as those at the Bakersfield Museum of Art, the Monterey Museum of Art, the Fresno Art Museum, the Tucson Museum of Art and Santa Barbara the Museum of Art. Her work is also part of several corporate collections, including those in Adobe Systems, AT&T, Hallmark, Sony Corporation and Intel.
