Michael Lynn Adams

Michael Lynn Adams is a contemporary real­ist painter. “My goal is to show that com­mon­place objects are any­thing but ordi­nary.” says Adams, “Using light, tex­ture and com­po­si­tion, I hope to cre­ate work that is full of warmth and spirit.” Adams’ paint­ings imbue a strong phys­i­cal pres­ence, almost pho­to­graphic, while the paint­ing tech­nique is clearly vis­i­ble. These paint­ings are meant to be enjoyed at a dis­tance and close up where they are full of nuance and discovery.

Adams’ works are in pri­vate col­lec­tions through­out the United States. Collector  Maggie Kruger noted in American Art Collector Magazine that his work “has a lumi­nous qual­ity; ema­nat­ing a quiet glow on the gallery wall. Collectors are mes­mer­ized and drawn to each of the works, mov­ing from each jewel-like paint­ing, bask­ing in the reflected light.”

The Los Angeles, California res­i­dent is a mem­ber of the International Guild of Realism and an asso­ciate mem­ber of the Oil Painters of America (OPA). His paint­ings have been exhib­ited in national and inter­na­tional shows, includ­ing Salon International, OPA National and OPA Western Regional shows.
