Erica H. Adams
An interdisciplinary artist, Erica H. Adams’ watercolors, photography and digital media have been exhibited in museums and galleries across the U.S. and Canada.
Curator of Above Us Only Sky (2022) and its (2023) iteration, Adams is a visual artist who writes about art, lectures and for over three decades was painting faculty at SMFA at Tufts University.
Recent watercolors use the language of abstraction in response to the pandemic, quarantine and social upheaval. As a postmodern artist invested in narratives, Adams revisited the Modernist language of abstraction, a private world and a visual music open to multiple interpretations. Abstract panel paintings first exhibited at Cape Cod Museum of Art, combine common materials to provoke chemical reactions akin to geology and climate change.
Photographs by Adams are in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and have been exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary, Boston, Everson Museum (NY), Art Gallery of Ontario (Canada) and Acceptable Entertainment a traveling exhibition about television’s impact on culture, circulated by Independent Curator’s International (NY).
