Snowy Fields

Elizabeth Adams

Snowy Fields begins with the presentation of twenty charcoal drawings of the rural landscape of central New York State,  completed during the winter of 2022-23, following the death of the artist’s father. Although she lived in the large city of Montreal, she had begun traveling frequently to the quiet, pastoral hills and fields of her childhood, which she began to draw,  contemplating her compulsion to create the series that was taking shape on her studio wall. As winter gave way to spring, she wrote a long reflection on identity, place, grief, and — centrally — her artistic process and what it eventually revealed to her. That essay forms the second part of the book. It is followed by an essay exploring Elizabeth Adams’ artwork, and this series of drawings in particular, by Michael Szpakowski, who has followed her work and engaged with her in conversation over a period of many years.
