Ewa Adams is a landscape painter. Her painting is a contemporary take on pointillism, a style famed for high labour intensity. In this technique, the circles of pure colour are juxtaposed next
to one another, and when viewed from a distance an optical interaction, a mixing of colours, is
created by the eye of the spectator. The result of this is a distinctive work of incredible freshness,
vibrancy and luminosity. Landscapes, usually sunny, glow with uplifting energy. They buzz with life.
Her understanding of the tone and colour interrelations is second to none. Her pallet is bright and
bold and her images are full of joy and optimism.
Adams takes us on a journey, we go back to her beloved subject of woodland with dancing
patches of light and shadow. We are led to an edge of water where there is more light, movement and colour reflections. And we stand in an open landscape where she is somehow able to
paint the air and one can sense the distance of the horizon. Unremarkable becomes remarkable.
She captures the beauty of the familiar world, that can be found on our doorstep. She creates
form and movement out of pure colour.
This group of works gives us more insight into Ewa’s creative way of thinking. It contains not only her
“landscape meditations”, as she calls her pointillistic paintings, but also some of her colour sketches - quick confident notes, essences of landscape.
She says “I paint to understand, by painting I explain the world to myself. The light, main subject of
my art, is such a fickle matter. It often takes me weeks to capture a brief moment. The landscapes
I picture are not imagined. I encountered them, I walked through them. I hope I can communicate the intensity and beauty of a moment once experienced and make others see the world
through my eyes”
