Ilene Adams was invited to create a piece for The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County’s, “Mark My Words” Exhibition, Opening March 30. Ilene created an installation piece, “I Am All Immigrants”, based on her grandfather’s hand-written birth certificate from Russia that she found when her mom passed. The piece, based on the translated words, explores being an immigrant and some of the issues our country now faces.

About “Mark My Words”:
The use of language has evolved dramatically with the advancement of technology and how it influences our lives. Texting and emails have replaced older methods of communication and our lexicon includes new words and phrases. Utilizing words in art is nothing new: think Ed Ruscha or John Baldessari, the Ancient Egyptians or the art in Medieval Churches across Europe. This exhibition will showcase the work of 15 professional artists in Palm Beach County that feature “words” as their subject matter and muse.
Adams works in both mixed media and photography, often combining the two in installation pieces. Her photography is generally bright, over-accentuated colors that push the limits and transform everyday objects and nature into abstract images. Her mixed media work, on the other hand, is usually nostalgic and delicate, and looks at how our world and life mesh together.
