JSS Artists (WMOS): Ted Adams

Ted opened his first floor studio during West Medford Open Studios…Image

Two children experience contemporary art in a big city museum. Three chefs prepare meals in an open kitchen on view to the public. A woman rests on the side of the road in a hill station as America peers over her shoulder. Images that tell a story with color, texture, and light.

Since an early age, I’ve been telling stories. From grade school to graduate school, I focused on telling those stories with words, culminating in an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College. Recently, I’ve produced my art 1,000 words at a time — if the equivalency of the cliché about pictures is true. In this new form, I bring the participant deep into the macro world of a monarch butterfly. I share the tranquility of a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas. I reveal the wonder of the natural world, from the small to the magnificent.

This year I appropriate my own photos, bringing them into mixed media compositions mounted on sheet metal. It is my pleasure to exhibit my work in my new studio during West Medford Open Studios. I invite you to share my pleasure of color, texture, and light.
