Adrienne says "I am trying to embrace what William Wordsworth calls “the light of common day.” It’s impossible to make it through life unscathed or undistracted by the rush of daily obligations, insecurities and aspirations. Yet, in the quieter hours, I find myself thinking about how we are only here, in ourselves, this space, this moment, so briefly — it is, indeed, all we ever have until we go wherever it is we go next.
But, until then, I’d like to live everything, however difficult it is to be present — to hear the bass of the car radio in my chest, the roll of laugher in conversation, to smell the sun on the sidewalk, or to see the way it hits my window in morning... In this way, I think, the grey of passing days can still be viewed with childlike wonder, yet with the sobering retrospect that things go forward — that the new becomes familiar, but beauty is there if you look. And we take this weight, and we get on.
I used to run away from the reality of my own impermanence. Now I make art about it. This portrait is about living in the weight and paradoxical levity of unknowing."
