Adam Martin Disbrow is a prizewinning US painter with national exposure. His work addresses issues of relationship, spirituality, sexuality, duality, beauty, relativism, nature, and dominion. His paintings involve many layers and often include symbols of Disbrow’s own creation and of historical significance. Also discernible in his work are heavy textures, interpretive colors, language, and formal techniques which combine to make each painting a unique statement. His intention is to create a free space for the mind and eye to express itself honestly.

“My work is a commentary on the history and culture of man. Each piece is meant to create a dialogue with the viewer— creating a free space for the mind and eye to express itself. The human mind contains infinite possibilities for self-expression. By building my paintings in many layers of objective symbols, form, color, and texture, the viewer is able to see things in the work that I did not necessarily put there. In this way, each piece is a unique statement.”

Disbrow is represented on the Fall Art Tour by Sperryville ARTist Cooperative.

I’ve recently become inspired by a visit to Hoopers’ Island which is near the  Blackwater Wildlife Refuge on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The island is sinking into the Chesapeake and consists of beautiful marshland and a few abandoned houses. I usually sketch the scene on location, take a photo, and proceed to do a value study in pencil.  I actually paint the scene in my studio using watercolor or pastel, sometimes combining the two. The rural countryside in Rappahannock County is a continuing inspiration to me.

My work is inspired by nature, particularly in National Parks, having lived in and visited so many.  I am an avid outdoorswoman, and always have my camera in my pocket when I am out hiking, biking, kayaking, or otherwise exploring. Since I am usually on the move when I am outdoors, I most often work later from the photographs I take while I am out adventuring. My watercolor technique is very detail-oriented, and I usually spend many hours on a painting, so working later from my photos works better for me.  I love to paint not only the larger landscapes but also the intimate landscapes, focusing on the many small wonders all around us that most people don’t notice. When I am outside, I am always looking for that next painting!

Nature recharges my soul, and I hope that my art will help others to see the beauty of the natural world that surrounds us all.  Awareness and appreciation will hopefully lead to the desire to protect, preserve, and care for this fragile planet we dwell on!

Humans have evolved in the last 200,000 years from co-inhabiting earth with all other life forms on a relatively even playing field to becoming the most aggressively invasive species in the history of the planet. Our unique intellect distinguishes us from other species, but seems to have come with one important element missing – responsible self-regulation. Our sense of connectedness to the planet and its inhabitants has all but left us, leaving only an insatiable hunger for more….. at the expense of life itself.

Trees co-inhabit territory in a very different and collective way. No individual’s needs are met without a direct connection to the wellbeing of the whole and even competition is collaborative.… something humans might learn from and perhaps be saved by. I layer my silk-screened photographs of ancient trees onto wood veneers with additional drawing, painting and printing. My personal visual language illustrates nature’s urgings, increasingly gone unheard by the ears, minds and hearts of those who inhabit and dominate her.
