Conversation with the Figure

Laurie Adams

June 1 – July 31, 2018


Conversation with the Figure by Laurie Adams, opens Friday, June 1 with an opportunity to meet the artist from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

North Carolina artist Adams’ June exhibit intends to raise thoughts and questions about the conversations we have and how that translates into communication. The artist says, “I am interested in who we bring forth and present in our conversations and how honest are we in revealing ourselves. My paintings represent that which I see as the very essence of the figure, so as to start a conversation of beauty, mystery, the female body unashamed, mother and child, communal efforts, and strangers, unconnected, yet searching for a connection. It is my intent through this body of work to ask a larger question, that I believe looms over us both individually and collectively, and that is what conversations still long to be spoken?”

Using oils and canvas, Adams’ process is to search for lost and found form, edges, texture and layers to create an atmospheric relationship between shapes, adding color and hue, hoping the subject gives birth to its unique personal beauty.  The artist’s current interest is in abstraction both with the figure and without, emphasizing the simplicity of black and white, light and dark, and all that lies in-between. 

Nationally recognized, the artist graduated from Lesley College, Cambridge, MA, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. She pursues her passion for the human form from her Hendersonville, NC studio.
