Dee Adams is a painter whose work resonates with me so deeply I'm not sure I can put it into words. Indeed, it may be a disservice to try and intellectualize it. It needs to be felt.
See what I mean? On Dee's website she refers to her art as "contemporary, minimalist, abstract." I feel a kinship with her because she is obsessed with simplicity and perfection.
Her work may appear simple, but it is not easy. I understand the painstaking precision that goes into trying to make a simple, flat painting with not a line out of place. In fact, many of my multi-layered paintings (even though a lot of fun) are done because an attempt at perfection failed and I am left with no choice but to layer on the paint. It is my flat paintings that are done correctly the first time - that I enjoy aesthetically the most. The others are merely means for experimentation. Unfortunately, I only like maybe 1 out of 10 of my paintings.
So, even though Dee's paintings are simple, they are not easy. Indeed, they are quite skillful. I adore them so that I had trouble selecting only a few to post.
As if it's not enough that the girl rocks a canvas, she is one hot mama too.
And she is skilled at display. I featured her amazing glass collection, lovingly arranged by color, in a previous post, here. I think this girl just may be the golden goose. I would love to see her design rugs too.
