Heather Adels
About the Artist

Heather Adels is a Rhode Island based artist who specializes in drawing and painting. The artist uses materials such as ink, colored pencil and acrylic paint extensively, pushing her palette to develop rich, translucent layers of unexpected hues.

The subject matter is biological in nature. Hinting at flora and fauna, the shapes are formed using combinations of images that might include but are not limited to appendages, nuclei, fronds and various anatomical splays of parts. The figures or apparitions dance in and out of the space, appearing playful at first, while further observation reveals a waxing or waning darkness.
