It's been said "find something that you love to do and you'll never
have to work a day in your life." That notion has worked for Mark Adams
for nearly forty years. From his early flirtation with cubist abstractions
past his heavily Dutch influenced figurative work of the early 70's into the
theatrical world of dancers and mimes and onto the recontexturalized
appropriated fashion series of the late 80's and all the while including
commissioned portraits -- in the words of Jerry Garcia: " What a long,
strange trip it's been!"
