Adam Fuss was born in 1958 in England. He lives and works in New York. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions at key galleries and museums, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; FotoMuseum, in Winterthur; and the Nationa Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; among others.
Since 1985, Fuss has been working with photograms, which are created by placing living and non-living objects directly onto Cibachrome paper and exposing them to light. This was a technique often used by Surrealist artists, and for which Fuss received great critical attention.
Fuss’ photograms often explore imperfection, intimacy, nostalgia, and the passage of time; and include evocative imagery, ranging from flowers and natural motifs to images of babies, children’s clothing, abstracted spirals, and drops of water. Fuss’ photographs are often suffused with light and an ethereal character.
