John Adams

John Adams has been intrigued by ways of translating the world through art.

September 11, 2015 | | Artist in Residence

Ever since he was five and his babysitter used multiple colours to fill in an apple in his colouring book, John Adams has been intrigued by ways of translating the world through art. A motorcycle enthusiast with a passion for the outdoors, John divides his time between city and country. He says the soothing quality of his landscapes comes about in part because “I never bother with all the small details … I tend to concentrate on the overall effect or the big picture.” His work will be in the Headwaters Arts Show at the end of this month, and in Dragonfly Arts on Broadway beginning November 11.
