Where Sky Meets Earth: The Luminous Landscapes of Victoria Adams Paperback

North-West landscape painter Victoria Adams is equally committed to the landscape tradition and the creation of exquisite scenes that address the contemporary desire for the sublime.

Victoria AdamsAdams depicts idealised landscapes that evoke virgin terrain, untouched by human intervention and devoid of degradation. Through her reworking of landscape traditions and conventions, her paintings reveal the inextricable connections between beauty and the sublime and melancholia. Her paintings evoke the deep desire for the perfect moment and heighten awareness of the psychological impact of the idealised landscape. Adams presents the landscape as a solitary experience with the immense and infinite sublime-a magnificent solitude. Where Earth Meets Sky is the first museum survey exhibition of Victoria Adam’s work and is part of the Tacoma Art Museum’s Northwest Perspective Series. Adams’ work is held in private and museum collections throughout the United States. Rock Hushka is Tacoma Art Museum’s curator of contemporary and North-West art.

Tacoma Art Museum Where the Sky Meets the Earth: The Luminous Landscapes of Victoria Adams open through October 3, 2010. Adams, a local artist living on Vashon Island, paints rich, panoramic views of sky and land, untouched and unrestricted by humans.
