Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA (PRWEB) July 03, 2014
The Winfield Gallery presents Patterns of Infinity— New Works of Tracey Adams. Patterns of Infinity, the new works by Tracey Adams has modulated to a deeper level of open form and experimentation.
Adams’ passion to integrate music composition, visual perception, and elements found in nature is a theme that has long been at the core of her work. Her recent series implies a grander variation to her previous themes. She has opened up and allowed herself a free-flowing, indeterminate perspective. Her work reveals the subtleties of many layers and dimensions that emerge and take shape, simulating the currents and color pools in nature often suffused with light and shadow.
Influenced and inspired by her study of music theory, Tracey Adams is drawn to the intersections of music, art and math. Each series she creates has a natural evolution and connection to the next resulting in a synthesis of intention and chance. Using only pigmented beeswax and collage mounted on panels this new series allows her to retain the purity she seeks while pursuing new directions.
“The evolution of Tracey Adams’ work is cathartic. Comparable to the experimental music concepts of composer John Cage, she is ‘purposefully playing’ which is ‘an affirmation of life — not an attempt to bring order out of chaos nor to suggest improvements in creation but simply a way of waking up the very life we’re living.’”
—Karen Crews Hendon, Chief Curator, Monterey Museum of Art
