Pietro Adamo’s paintings are a celebration of the artist’s admiration for the unpredictable and inexhaustible record of life. He abandons the conventional renderings of geometric forms through his textured surfaces and rough contours. Adamo draws influence from artists of all periods and from the world around him. Travel is an important source of inspiration; especially trips to Italy, his ancestral homeland. During these extended stays, Adamo is able to explore monumental art and architecture as well as the small details of the rural landscape. Adamo’s career as an artist has been a journey of continuous exploration and growth. His paintings on paper and canvas have a constant audience. He has also released a highly successful series of hand-pulled prints and posters. Today his works can be found in galleries throughout the world.
His work is also very much an execution of action. He loves the charge of creating a piece, working the mediums into unique textures and compositions. Only when the statement is sustained can he step away and leave the painting. Painting, he says, is very much about the process of discovering problems and then solving them”. To Pietro Adamo, art is ultimately about expression. It is his way of liberating all his ideas and feelings. To realize this expression, he has developed the careful and sophisticated language of his paintings.“I am once again reminded of the delicate balance of all things great and small. Color and texture from nature and simple iconography from my ancestry combine to form the language of my art.
