Brian Adams

Inuit Art Quarterly - - PORTFOLIO -

Adams, who read­ers might re­mem­ber from our Spring 2016 Cu­ra­tor’s Choice, has been cap­tur­ing the nu­ance and beauty of his na­tive Alaska for sev­eral years. This work, part of the pho­tog­ra­pher’s Port Slope se­ries, cap­tures the co-ex­is­tence of con­tem­po­rary life and tra­di­tional prac­tices. The un­blem­ished cream of the po­lar bear skin del­i­cately con­trasts the muted green of the house; be­low it an aban­doned can of Dr. Pep­per is barely vis­i­ble, tucked be­neath a pile of wooden boards. Adams’ ca­pac­ity to high­light the aes­thetic qual­i­ties of ev­ery day mo­ments through thought­ful fram­ing and colour com­po­si­tion re­sults in a body of work that skill­fully draws us into his world.
