A native of Southern California, Ren Adams has been working in the visual arts for more than 20 years, with an emphasis on painting and printmaking. Adams work combines a reverence for traditional art making with an insatiable desire to explore and document the interconnection of all things.

Adams work for me is both a form of moving meditation and an analysis of the patterns of nature, investigating concepts of balance, harmony, enlightenment, consciousness, and time, while celebrating the ordinary as extraordinary. Through “li,” or “vigorous strength,” lines and forms are expressive, conveying a sense of immediacy that unites philosophy, history, nature and mysticism.  Current projects combine printmaking with traditional Chinese brush painting, Eastern philosophy, science and nature. I’ve found Adams work to be inspirational in both concept and content in regards to my own work.
