The work of Yura Adams is abstract, full of color and movement and is inspired by surprising forms and ideas she finds in the natural world. In the studio, she builds on ideas from science and creates an imaginative explanation of “what happens”. Her interpretations are elaborate inventions, based on what she is currently mining and her work makes a poetic commentary on what is IRL, but not seen. Reference to scale in the imagery can toggle between (much) larger-than-human to an unpredictable, microscopic zoom.
Currently she is working on Fast Earth, a body of work speculating on what the re-design of earth will look like. On this website view Fast Earth Wall; a 25 foot-wide wall drawing made up of hand-made paper pieces that (in her mind and hand) track the progress of the new earth.
