Los Angeles-based artist Lisa Adams began her artist career with a Bachelor of Arts in Painting from Scripps College in Claremont, California. Adams then continued through Claremont Graduate University’s Master in Fine Arts program.
Working in a Post Modern artistic sense of layering and mixed media, Adams creates texture and depth within the two-dimensional painting space. A Fulbright Professional Scholar, Adams’ work has been widely acclaimed and collected, notably by philanthropist and avid art collector Eli Broad. Lisa Adams currently practices out of Los Angeles but has participated in artist residencies all around the world from Finland, to Japan and Costa Rica.
Overlapping forms and subtle accents of color create the composition of Adams’ 1988 Busy Bodies. Obtained by Chapman University in 2003, Busy Bodies displays her exploration of the physical qualities of paint. Adams’ past and recent works display parallel attributions to artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and American artist Jasper Johns. Whether she is independently curating art shows or designing the BMW of North America Art Car, Lisa Adams stands as important practicing female artist– she is a progressive individual who concurrently calls upon historical art practice.
