Philadelphia artist Phoebe Adams is nationally recognized for her biomorphic sculptural forms. Her work is inspired by natural phenomena-imagery suggestive of astronomical, biological, or geographical formations. Often, Adams will couple her organic primal forms with contemporary manufactured elements to create an imaginative dialogue between past and present, between the natural and manmade.
She is also masterfully elusive with reference to scale. What appears to be a magnified organism can simultaneously recall a diminutive landscape. Additionally, Adams's precise craftsmanship with materials such as cast bronze or cast and hand blown glass are crucial to the resultant sophistication of each sculpture.
Her work is represented by Seraphin Gallery, Philadelphia and Bellas Artes Gallery, Santa Fe.
