Statement
Adams collects and reassembles objects to create new meaning and new possibilities, engaging a playful balance between humour and formal issues; size and perception of scale; longevity versus ephemerality; and how these relationships inform the value of work. Experienced as a metalsmith, Adams’ print series 'Coinage' combines coin collecting and jewellery techniques. He thought of coins as a bridge between metal-smithing and printmaking, and based on coin details, created large etchings, and used coins themselves as tiny printing plates.
