This work is inspired by the series titled Guna (2016) which is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘string, thread or strand’ and was inspired by Adams yoga practice.

“It’s a key concept in various schools of Hindu philosophy which states there are 3 gunas: goodness, passion and darkness, all present in everyone and everything, but in different proportions. The interplay of the 3 gunas define the character of someone or something, of nature and determines the progress of life”. (Wikipedia)

The pieces in this series are printed with pigmented encaustic on Japanese paper; they are then mounted on panel and coated with medium like this work or stand alone as works on paper.

These artworks were a reaction to the more serialized and geometric work Adams was doing, a need to break from that and work in a freeing and more physical way.
