Born in 1971, in Poland, Ewa Adams is a landscape painter. She originally trained as an architect. The technical and design based education may explain therefore the precision of her mark making and her attention to detail. Ewa's main areas of interest are colour and light depiction. Her painting is a contemporary take on pointillism, a style famed for high labour intensity. In this technique, the circles of pure colour are juxtaposed next to one another, and when viewed from a distance an optical interaction, a mixing of colours, is created by the eye of the spectator. The result of this is a distinctive work of incredible freshness, vibrancy and luminosity. Her bright and bold palette fills the viewer with joy and optimism.
"Moments of solitude" is her fourth solo exhibition at McAllister Thomas Gallery.
"It has been a very strange year. We were all forced to slow down and isolate. Suddenly the nature and open spaces were the only places where we could feel normal. A lot of people found the beauty of a landscape very reassuring.
I hope this feeling of peace, solace and hope can be found in this latest group of my paintings. Captured in paint forever. Moments of solitude."
