Through his drawings and paintings, the Mississippi-based artist uses his work to explore many themes and motifs, the likes of which include sexuality, spirituality, and his place within his art. Adams' work encourages reflection and self-discovery amid "traditions that often deny the outsider’s existence."
"I make my art as a way of processing what it means for me to be human here," Adams said in a statement. "I see patterns of me embracing and deconstructing the spiritual myths and traditions that are a part of my life, especially in a time where we are so disconnected. I am interested in the spaces of possibility for connection. Over the past few years, nature has been a place where I feel free and connected. We have created institutions and new technologies that are supposed to create social bonds, but time and time again these structures are exposed as soul distractors. They divide us and often unite the worst in us. I don’t have answers or solutions, but my art is a space where I am trying to explore what this means to me. I do not think I am fully seeing in my art what I am trying to communicate. I have glimpses of breakthrough, and I think more will come if I keep showing up."
Some of Adam's recent and upcoming exhibitions of work include Maybe, The Bridegroom Waits For Me, which took place at the Southside Gallery in Oxford, MS in March 2022; Open Studio at the Water Valley Art Crawl, which is taking place on September 17 in Water Valley, MS; and Queer Aesthetics at Mississippi University for Women, which is taking place in Fall 2022 in Columbus, MS.
