Rachel Adams’ work is drawing, but not quite as we know it. Using paper draped over
wooden armatures to create large sculptural forms in bleached-out, faded pastel tones, Adams extrapolates one of drawing’s traditional functions – to define spatial relationships on a plane – into three dimensions. Her work occupies the space of the gallery much as a bronze sculpture would, but with none of its mass and spatial aggression.
