Jake Adams : Visual Artist
Colors are Jakes prized possession. Or he at least wishes they were possessions... But yet maybe they are, to all of us. He is constantly scanning for new ones. Unfortunately, we are only human. Unlike mantis shrimp whom have 18 retinal cones within their eyes, we can only see a pitiful 5 cone light spectrum. Nonetheless Jake is thankful for the human eye ball.
Jake Adams is an international artist currently based in Rochester, NY. He has lived and worked in Baltimore, MD, Monte Costello, Italy, and Beacon, NY (Hudson valley). while in Beacon he worked as an assistant to Michael Zelehoski and Ethan Cohan. He also occupied a job at the DIA: Beacon art museum where he relished in the vast quantities of minimalism while standing as gallery attendant. He is currently raising money to continue his ongoing projects, in the hopes that he will soon be able to achieve a masters degree and travel to Sweden. The Sweden project is a long term goal. In raising money to travel to Sweden he hopes to view the oldest and most meticulous records of single individuals. It highlights the day to day lives within a small village. These records span a 1,000 year period. Jake hopes to be able to access these records and create visual portraits of consciousness governed by the past, but framed by the present. It is this simple swap from present to past that interests him, Along with the deep introspective history that took place along those evolutionary years. It is the most definitive relationship of past and present outside of oneself.
