Ilene Gruber Adams Mixed Media Paintings And Photography Will Be In Several Area Exhibits

Ilene Gruber Adams is a professional artist working in both mixed media painting and in photography. Her paintings are a mixture of various mediums including photo transfers, plaster, gold leaf and thread. Her photos show bold, bright colors, pushing the limits on saturation and manipulating reality.  This season, Ilene’s work can be seen throughout the County at: Town of Jupiter Art Gallery (January 8th), Art Synergy/ArtPalmBeach (January 17th- 24th), Continuum (January 20th-30th) and Wayne Akers /Fordistas Gallery  (Through February 28th).  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

Ilene tells The Rickie Report, “I work in both mixed media and photography, each with a different focus. In my paintings, I use old family and vintage images creating stories that evoke a feeling of nostalgia. I like to take an isolated image and although it is separate, see how it relates to the whole. My photography looks at nature but through an eye that sees intensified color and transforms the ordinary into the sublime, often in a painterly style that leaves the viewer wondering if it is a painting or a photograph.

“Sky Interrupted” by Ilene Adams

 

 

 

The artists that influenced her the most are Robert Rauschenberg and Maxfield Parish. Rauschenberg’s influence is apparent the paintings. They evoke a feeling of nostalgia or of imaginary places.  Her photographs on the other hand, deal mostly with nature, but nature through an intense filter. Images are put under a microscope and colors are heightened. Ordinary images are enhanced to create painterly new images that leave the viewer wondering if they are paintings or photographs? Abstract or realistic?”

“Water” by Ilene Adams

 

Ilene has been working on two new series which are being previewed this season: “Sky Interrupted” and “Water”. “Sky Interrupted” is based on views of the sky punctuated by various manmade structures. “Water” looks at various forms of water, whether ocean, lake, puddle or marsh, and seeing it as a beautiful and precious resource transformed into abstract jewel tone colors. Both deal with our relationship to our environment and how by manipulating the colors, bring attention to what we take for granted.
