This painting, Woman on a Walk
, is part of The Walking Project
, a three-part, body of work made up of painting, installation and performance.
The paintings were developed from perceptions collected on regular walks with my dog in my village and are a combination of the figure in motion and abstract forms.
Most recently this work became an installation piece comprised of the paintings installed as a series of stops posted along one of my walks in the community of Athens, NY.
The performance was a guided walk of the installation during which I told stories about Athens that I had collected from people in the community. Some of the stories were true, others based on Urban Myths and other acts of elaboration. www.yuraadams.com
