Marina Adams composes paintings from arresting swaths of bright hues that coalesce on the canvas, resulting in uniquely abstract figural illusions that are characteristic of her work. Adams' broad gestural strokes waver between improvisation and structure, freeing geometric abstractions from rigidity. Adams' lyrical titles reflect the paintings' inherent poeticism while providing a structural framework for non-narrative experience.
In Blue Star (Saquasohuh), from which we collaborated with Adams to produce this print edition, she layered gouache and ink on Indian Tsarsho Paper over a period of about three years (2011 - 2014), taking full advantage of the paper’s absorbency to achieve a deep, time-based luminosity. In our print edition, this original texture and depth is echoed in the archival paper grain, while the hand-touched feel is mimicked in the paper's deckled edge.
Print is floated with a 1" border atop a white mat.
