Adam Staley Groves

Adam Staley Groves

Born: 1976

Hometown: Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Based in: Singapore

I paint to address the question of thinking and the potential nonhumanity of the near future; a seemingly inevitable historicization exceeding the inhumane. Art must not become an entirely historical reprise. Whether an artist likes it or not “the artist is driven” in this way.

When painting I engage the substrate with deference to what is abstract to thought and the meditative act which immediately follows. I delay the conceptual phase, I avoid technical supremacy as emphases, opting for resemblances of the initial abstract I cannot plan in advance.

Similar to poetry subject matter is secondary, in the sense that I do not intend it as much as it is offered freely from an unknown. I readily admit to a mystification by this which, if over-indulged, would reduce the potential glimpse of thinking.

Adam Staley Groves In The Studio

"The truth is – in part – we know something about our thoughts and less about the thinking which pervades individual consciousness. Painting is a way to care for thinking."
