Adam Chapman: Artist Statment

Diagram of Isolated Moments Forming a Memory is a series of generative drawings on paper in which programmatic rules are applied to colored lines and washes that swim around the composition. These abstract elements periodically resolve into representational portraits of close friends and family.

Every second of the installation is original. Every time a portrait is formed, it is different; the lines thicker in one place, the colors shifted. These portraits are continually forming, dissolving, and reforming.
