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!"
