Terry Adkins passed away one year ago today. It was clear that during his diverse career he was a creative catalyst for many as a professor and multi-disciplinary artist. I like the way he turns his subjects and concepts on their end by highlighting a little known or under-appreciated aspect of them. In this way he facilitates a deeper understanding of the subject both enlightening and challenging viewers in new and unique ways.
This video about Adkins’ creative process behind his “Recital” exhibition is both is as inspirational as it is fascinating.
