Artist

Name: Adam Kolp
Statement: This painting pays homage to the beauty that surrounds us in our daily lives. The incredible display of beauty has and will always be present, patiently waiting to be recognized. I was lucky to have this realization only after my life was challenged with vision loss. Through the unfortunate experience of losing my vision, I was able to begin to appreciate the beautiful moments that many people are still blind to by looking past the inconvenience of an out of focus night scene, the absence of the detail on the street signs and the blurred faces of the people passing by, and noticing the beautiful glared lights dancing across the wet pavement. I only hope that you are able to see this beauty that our world has to offer, whether it is the changing of the autumn trees, the red of a cardinal perched on a branch, a summer bike ride, the innocent smile on a child's face, or the glared lights dancing across the night.
