Kelly Rose Adams recognizes painting as a unique opportunity to expand upon reality. Adams layers visual metaphor with realist painting practices to describe invisible psychological themes. She is interested in the collective human experience, with a focus on hidden identity and shared emotion. The process of layering the classic form of a portrait, with visual representations of the internal self, offers a more complete picture of an experience.
