Adria Arch creates bright, gestural paintings which engage the element of chance through liquid movements of paint. The combination of solid, opaque shapes and more fluid patterns create depth, while bursts of color bring unique energy to each piece. These large scale works uses both graphic and painterly elements in playful abstract compositions that embrace spontaneity.
Adria Arch has had solo exhibitions at Danforth Art in Framingham, MA, the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, MA, and the Hunt Gallery at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, VA. She has completed site specific murals at Lesley University's Porter Square building in Cambridge, MA, Stonehill College, and Danforth Art in Framingham, MA. Arch has been awarded residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Sanskriti Foundation in Delhi, and most recently in Auvillar, France. Her work is featured in the DeCordova Museum’s current exhibit, Expanding Abstraction.
