Artist’s Statement


On “Reverse Painted & Fused Glass”


I have been a painter and printmaker for most of my career and have recently been exploring painting on glass. I have always been interested in light and color, and glass painting adds an extra and exciting dimension both visually and technically. On these pieces I have used a grisaille technique in which the black paint is scratched away and the color is applied on top. The pieces are then fired, fused and slumped with the reverse side up so the painting is behind glass.

On “Monoprinting”

“I’ve always loved the view around each corner and the dramatic change of seasons here.  Monoprinting has become a passion. It is painterly printmaking. I love the transparency of color you can create as the layers are built up.”

-Clare Sullivan Adams



Biography


Clare Sullivan Adams works in the mediums of monotype printmaking, painting, reverse glass painting, and most recently fused glass.  Adams’s influence from Asian arts as well as her interest in reviving old techniques and continually pushing her work through the use of multiple mediums, all serve to inform her observational landscape prints and her abstract designs. 


The artist’s complementary and tonal palette abstracts her landscapes, while her fluidity of brushstrokes and layers of pigment show her painterly printing style.  In Adams’s reverse glass painting we see biomorphic shapes, and the application of gold and silver leaf in antique mirroring techniques used in a way which speaks to her printmaking work.  


Adams’s work with the technique of fused glass brings the use of applied pigments as with a monotype print along with the addition of metal inclusions to works created with sheets of glass cut and fused into moulds within a kiln.
