About the Artist
Working with diverse media, Adam explores a wide variety of themes associated with body politics. He holds an MFA from the University of Arizona, and since graduating in 1999, has lived and taught in Southern California, Chicago, Illinois and Georgia. Over the course of his career, Adam has found himself working and teaching in as varied environments as AIR programs in the states and abroad, 6 to 6 programs, a correctional facility, a wayward home for pregnant teens, community colleges, and a public liberal arts college in the rural south. Adam currently resides in southern California where along with making work, he is an Assistant Professor of Art at Scripps College. A few of his recent accomplishments include his participation as an artist-in-residence at Svenska Konstskolans Vänner in Nykarleby, Finland; his inclusion in Judith Schwartz's book Confrontational Ceramics (2008); a solo exhibition entitled Binding with Briars at the University of Washington in Pullman, Washington, curating the Scripps 2009 Ceramic Annual, and this summer, he will be an artist-in-residence at Sculpture Space, in Utica, New York.
The three works created while in residence at Sculpture Space are part of a larger series I have been working on over the past two years. Through diverse mediums including photography, sculpture, video, animation, and karaoke, I have been exploring notions of access and desire. The series is currently made up of ten separate works, all bound by this common theme.
