|Amber Adams is an MFA candidate at Howard University. Born and raised in Washington DC, she completed her undergraduate studies at The Copper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art where she received Bachelors of Architecture. The influence of architecture is clearly visible in the steel and wood pieces the artists builds in an investigation of formal concepts and the mechanics of construction. She is driven by a deep fascination with materiality and the process of physical creation. The work juxtaposes heavy industrial materials with pliable domestic materials. The artist strives to activate and reveal space and materials to create gestural forms. She is also engaged in the portrayal of body through figurative sculpture, perhaps giving life to her imagined architectures.
