Bobbie Diamond Adams: Remembering China


"The world you see there is unlike anything else; the work you see here is inspired by China's vast majestic and breathtaking landscapes, seemingly unaffected by the interloper humanity. As it turns out, it seems that China was speaking to me long before I actually got to stand on the Great Wall or climb the Guilan mountainside. I strive to present moments in time, to create atmospheric places..... to create artwork whose subject is open to many interpretations..somewhere between what you see and what you feel. At any rate, the images tell the story better than I. I have been working this way for a long time."
