Peter Adams Peter Adams (Bladel, 1959) naturally carries creativity. There he has on a little later age added a professional art education. At the Academy of Beauty Arts in Arendonk he first followed the drawing and painting training and then the courses in classical and figurative modelling. He graduated cum laude. The sketch is always the basis of his spatial work. If that foundation is missing, you can you can shake it in the view of Adams. But even the best sketch is just a starting point. The actual work has yet to begin: to arrive at an image that is essentially something to the viewer has to say. To achieve this, the artist sticks to the figuration, a style of working which, according to him, has fallen too much into the dark corner in recent decades. Explainable by the way: too often figurative work got stuck in imitating reality. While it's there it is precisely about breathing new life into that reality. Adams does this by focusing on the movement set. When you look at his sculptures, you always see flowing lines – from bottom to top, rotating, diagonally, again and again directions that take over each other. Images full of life.
