The work of Yura Adams is abstract, full of color and expresses a vivid experience of energy.
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.
Her most recent body of work, titled, Fast Earth, speculates on the re-design of earth. For examples on this website, view Current, and especially, Fast Earth Wall; a 25 foot-wide wall installation of hand-made paper pieces that (in her mind and hand) track the progress of the new earth.
