Clara Adolphs uses pho­to­graphs ran­domly amassed from books, flea mar­kets and vin­tage news­pa­per ar­ti­cles to cre­ate her com­po­si­tions, ren­dered in thick im­pasto paint. In her ex­am­i­na­tion of the im­per­ma­nence of mem­ory, Adolphs cap­tures the seem­ingly fa­mil­iar, fleet­ing mo­ments and emo­tions of her found sub­jects only to reimag­ine their am­bigu­ous his­to­ries by re­paint­ing over their faces and lo­ca­tions. In do­ing so, she of­fers a loose, fresh in­ter­pre­ta­tion of their nar­ra­tives. ‘Re­mem­ber­ing Words’ presents her most re­cent body of work. Woman, Seated
