Paula Adams makes work that is at once sculpture, painting and photographic print. To make large-scale work she takes photographs of small models and sculptures made of wood, plastic or metal, which she has made in her studio. These photographs are developed and made into 6x4 prints. She then works into the photographs by scratching the surfaces using scalpels; cutting into the top layer of the paper and peeling back sections to reveal the underneath. She also works on top of the photographs with dyes, inks and pigments giving the surfaces a new colour palette. The images are then scanned at a high resolution and printed at a large scale using an inkjet printer and robust, satin Hannehmule 308gsm Fine Art paper. The lender explains: ‘I’m greatly influenced by ‘line’ and this piece certainly has loads of ‘line’! I only came to appreciate the colours after I got the piece home and saw it in good light. I was also most impressed in the process that Paula uses to produce the work’.
