About this Edition

Adams applies her painterly sensibility found in her practice to unconventional methods of printmaking that highlight her fluid, rhythmic mark-making.

In her Poem series, Adams arranges monoprints in pairs which further activate their bold colors, dynamic gestures, and expressive marks. The monoprints take on a composition that is simultaneously open, intimate, and unified.
