Arteetude Episode 201 with John Adams: A Deep Dive into Environmental Art and Conscious Creation
In this riveting episode of Arteetude, Detlef Schlich invites listeners into the unique artistic world of John Adams. Broadcasting from Adams' gallery-house in Cove, Ireland, the two explore the meaningful intent behind his art, particularly his recent body of work titled "Animals Matter." This series focuses on the environmental struggles facing animals due to human pollution and overfishing, topics that have become increasingly important during the COVID-19 lockdowns.
John Adams sheds light on the duality of art's impact on the environment, discussing his conscious efforts to reduce pollution. Through painting on reclaimed beach rubbish like corrugated metal, Adams sends a powerful message about the conditions faced by marine life. He also shares his experiences of international sales and the current art scene in Ireland, revealing that despite difficulties in securing local exhibitions, his work has found homes worldwide, as far away as Canada and America.
This episode resonates with anyone interested in the intersection of art, environmental activism, and mindful living. It's a compelling reminder that art is not just a commercial endeavour but a medium for critical thought and meaningful change.
