About

Sujoon II (Cornflower & Cobalt), Atticus Adams Mesh Wall Sculpture Screen Shadow Metal fiber sculpture that incorporates fascinating light and shadow into its form. ​​ From Atticus Adams: ​ “I like to think of my work as Neo-Appalachian Folk Art.” Atticus grew up in the mountains of West Virginia, steeped in traditional folk art. Several members of his family were self-taught artists, deeply involved in such crafts as wood carving and quilting. “Making tangible objects is definitely part of my family heritage,” – “I come from a tradition of using simple, easily available materials for creative expression.” “Metal mesh is a beautiful, flexible material that allows you to explore shadow, transparency, and massing in endless ways. The material lends itself to these biomorphic shapes, which aren’t necessarily intentional . . . The sculptures seem fragile but are actually quite resilient—like nature itself.” His formal art training includes stints at Yale, Rhode Island School of Design, and Harvard’s School of Architecture. Atticus has fond summer memories of screened in porches back home and screen doors that practically dissolved the barrier between inside and outside, allowing the warmth and nature to permeate each day. This association continues to resonate in his art, and probably in those who get pleasure from his work. In 2006 Adams moved to Pittsburgh and now shares a loft with his husband Garry Pyles and his parrot Congo. ​This artwork is light and easy to ship and to install -- using 2 or three nails, or fishing line to achieve a desired position.
