This is the beginning of a new area of exploration in this artist's body of work. Mapping, the significance of color and the idealized language of visual imagery were prompted by the chance of discovery, in a dumpster, of swatches of color discarded by an interior designer. Adam Grossi grew up in Reston, VA. He attended the Ox-Bow Academy, School of Art Institue of Chicago in 2001. He received his BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 2003 and his MFA from the University of Illinois, Chicago in 2009. His art work creates images as a response to powerful experiences as a way of speaking back to culture.
