WAYNE adams' story

Wayne Adams is a Brooklyn-based artist, originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, who received his B.F.A. from Calvin College and M.F.A. from Washington University in St. Louis in 2000. Adams has exhibited throughout the Midwest, New York and Vienna, Austria. 
"I have, for a number of years, been interested how painting can address deeply personal notions through abstraction as well as representational imagery. Aluminum foil has been a recurring subject in my work for more than ten years. I am interested in the paradoxical quality of aluminum foil. It is common and cheap with the allure of preciousness and beauty – and I am fascinated by the fact that people, like foil, are an ever-changing reflection of their environments."
