The bronze sculptures of Jeff Adams capture the intangible elements
that surround and dwell within us. Wind and waves, fleeting emotions,
or echoes of ancient myths are all melded together using gestures,
composition, line and most importantly flow, to create the feeling
and spirit of the sculpture. His aim is to breathe life in the clay
figures he creates. It is only then that the process to transform
these elusive feelings into the permanent solidity of bronze begins.
