Adeline G.

Visual artist

My favorite projects explore resilience and vulnerability, beginning with notes and sketches that symbolize nonverbal cues. I transform selected drawings into oil paintings, capturing the essence of unique, irreplicable love through a close-up perspective.

Maps, 2020-2022

In the intricate realm of maps, I ponder our ability to navigate amid shifting data. Amidst global transitions, I craft layers beneath me, unfolding a panorama of places marked by time's touch.

The vivid hues and defined shapes persist beyond temporal constraints. As data aims for logical precision, questions arise about truth and arbitrary lines. Where do I stand? What guides my path? Mapping the "here" proves elusive, transient. Maps are fleeting, tethered to today, amiss tomorrow.

Plans confine, but our souls persist in forward motion, unrestrained.

Posthumous, 2018-2020

Acrylic on paper and etching and aquatint seri7

This project aims to capture the psychological journey of survivors, from fear and anxiety to hope and resilience, as they navigate life after trauma.

Rather than providing explicit narratives, the project seeks to inspire others to process their own experiences and find healing in their own unique way.

What is the deepest in man is the skin, 2016-2018

Portrait collection inspired by Valery's notion of human depth. The portraits examine the intricacies of human nature by closely examining subject's skin tone, texture, and the many layers of skin.

They encourage reflection on the beauty and enigmas of human form.
