“University Towne Center is pleased to present “Wakezone.” This solo exhibition features the work of Taylor Adams, a BFA candidate at the University of Florida.
Inspired by a passion for water athletics, Adams uses physical wakeboards as foundations for collage, creating surfaces for color and texture to interact. Adams collages media that she produces herself through the photoscanning of ink stains, textural paintings, and line compositions constructed completely out of thread. Noting the ever-moving nature of water and its interactions with the hard lines and shapes of wakeboarding features, she implements a contrast of organic and geometric form within her work. Among a color palette of blues, purples, and reds, swirling and rippling forms emerge and interact with geometric elements. Adams is largely inspired by the combination of controlled movements and bursts of action that compose the sport of wakeboarding and implements these motions throughout her process.
This show will be hosted by University Towne Center, located at 3345 SW 34th St, Suite 2 (located in the plaza with Tropical Smoothie and Asian Market) in Gainesville, Florida. “Wakezone” will be on exhibit for one night on April 17th with a reception from 6:00-9:00 pm.”
