A Certain Period of Time 07 by China Adams, 2015



A Certain Period of Time 07, 2015 Graphite on paper Dimensions: 20.5" x 60" From the series A Certain Period of Time, 2015. Dimensions are for actual drawing on paper. Piece comes framed. Framed dimensions: 23.5" H x 61.5" W x 1.5" D About China Adams (artist) China Adams makes conceptual art works in a range of media. Much of her work addresses notions of reusability, consumerism, and our impulse to acquire possessions. Though not as immediately self-referential as some of her earlier work, Adams’ "A Certain Period of Time" series of drawings certainly have a quality of self-portraiture imbedded within them. In considering the conscientious act of drawing each line, one at a time, one might imagine that these collections of lines mirror the internal rhythms of Adams’ thinking and breathing, slowed and intentional, paying homage to her own movement through time as she defines her experience with supreme economy using line only. Born in 1970 in San Francisco, China Adams has lived in Los Angeles for over twenty years. She earned a BFA from UCLA (1995) and an MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (2000). She has been featured in exhibitions around the world, including several solo shows at Ace Gallery, Los Angeles and Steve Turner Contemporary, Los Angeles.
