Adam's continues to strip away images from the canvas as she continues to simplify her life with her art.  Her thesis-her vision becomes more evident in works such as, Deus Ex Machina 2014.
What appears as a planet and a bunker fueled by a yellow fan belt, expresses Adams need to keep moving and maintain viability with the aid of her paintings.  

Adams' paintings appear as  declarations of a tragic aftermath.  However, looking at these paintings in terms of time minimizes what they represent. Adams' daily dose of "YouTube" videos streaming from the secretive nation of North Korea, affirm history maintaining the status quo that are portrayed in her paintings. 

During our phone interview Adams expressed the of power to think and form ideas,  as profound blessings. Whether Adams paintings are channeled prophecies or the interpretation of life as it is, they define the artist's diligent drive to express ideas.
