Lauren Adams' Profile

About

Hello and welcome! My name is Lauren and I am a painter who lives in West Virginia with my two cats and artist husband. My work focuses on paintings that capture the feeling of my state's terrain through abstraction. A combination of oil and acrylic paint is used to create works that are energetic, bold, and lusciously textured. I have been painting intensively for almost ten years and have my work placed in both public and private collections throughout the world.

BIOGRAPHY

Lauren Adams is landscape-inspired abstract painter. Much of her paintings explore the various phenomena of water's presence in the landscape. Her work is minimal yet expressive in style, imbued with an underlying energy.

Lauren's work has been featured on blogs such as West Elm, HGTV, Elements of Style, Decoist, and Kelly Market. She has exhibited her work extensively at various venues including her solo exhibition at The Slingluff Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, the Annex Gallery in Charleston, WV, and a two-person show at Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley. Recently, a large scale work of Adams' was displayed in D.C. Design House 2014, her region's premiere showroom event located in Washington, D.C..

While at FSU, Lauren studied with acclaimed painter Lynn Boggess and alongside her future husband, Derek Overfield. Her work is included in the collections of Fairmont State University and the West Virginia State Museum, as well as numerous national and international private collections. She resides in West Virginia with her husband and two cats.


ARTIST STATEMENT

My work arises from an awareness and reverence for the physical environment around me. Awe of the land's pervasive mystery and potential grows inward and ultimately re-emerges in abstraction. I soak and stain my pieces, shifting the pigmented water around on the canvas. This painting process suggests the primal simplicity and organic rhythm of the landscape. Natural themes, such as the way water shapes the land, are mirrored in the visual traces of paint left behind.

I evoke the opposing forces of calmness and energy, permanence and transience witnessed in nature - the representation in paint akin to the glory in which a cathedral strives.
