Adamcik says he's always thought in images; It's his primary language. He made picture before he could read or write and has been making them in some form or another throughout his entire life.
"It's how I process information and how I explain the world to myself and find my place in it," he says. "Starting with a germ of an idea I begin each piece and try to allow it to unfold as needs be. My thoughts are non-linear and random which accounts for the layering and juxtaposition of images; some just fragments, which build to a finished piece."
Adamcik believes that paint and other media provide the vehicle and then emotions are translated into color and texture. "I use tools, some used since antiquity, some totally contemporary. The most important thing is for me to let my subconscious come to the surface."
"Frequently I don't understand what is coming through until well after the piece is finished. I don't have any answers nor agenda other than expressing what is happening in my heart at the moment. Often viewers see totally different stories than I had ever imagined, which I find fascinating and rewarding," he says. "If my work causes a viewer to think or feel differently, for even a moment, then I feel I've accomplished what I set out to do. I paint first for myself, but with the thought in mind that this is what I want to share with the world. I could stop painting as a profession, but I think if I stopped making my work, I would probably explode."
