Since the turn of the last century, Adams' work has shifted in subject from the West to the Northwest, and with this has come a thematic change. Time, which beforehand served as an element to strengthen the sense of the contemporary urgency in the work, has now become a major theme unto itself. The landscapes depicted are now less about what we have made of the land and more about how we inhabit, or rather can inhabit, a body that is moving alongside the durable and the mutable elements, forces, and creatures that make up our world.
My hope is that in discussing the changing role of time in his work, we can expand the understanding of the generative impulse in Adams' overall corpus, and perhaps give voice to something particular and unique to the environs of the Northwest.
