Emily Davis Adams: Ground
March 23 through April 27, 2014
1923 S. Santa Fe Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90021
New York based Emily Davis Adams creates photorealistic watercolor and gouache paintings of what you see below your feet: patches of grass, asphalt, and gravel. She’s working through her interest in masterful painting and a minimalist aesthetic — such as if you paint a rectangular, monochromatic stretch of asphalt, allowing nothing else into the image frame, isn’t it effectively a minimalist painting?
