Strata is a technically challenging series of works which uses a method of multilayered clear glass embellished with shots of colour or precious metal between the tiers.
Adam draws upon the aesthetic potential of layered structures in nature, with a particular reference to glacial deposits and rock and land formation.
“The body of work I call Strata stems from a long-held fascination with layers; from layering found in the natural world of rock formation and glacial structures, to more complex sociological layering seen in aspects of everyday life. This concept has permeated my artwork for more than fifteen years. Strata acts as an invitation to look beneath the surface, to avoid judging by appearances. When you are encouraged to take a closer look, you often find hidden treasure.”
