Originally from the Thames Estuary, Adam Bracey graduated from the University of Brighton in 1998. He has taught Visual Arts in colleges, universities and schools around Sussex for over a decade where he has made his permanent home. The Sussex coast serves as the major inspiration for his work and he has never lived far from the sea.
His paintings have become primarily concerned with the physical properties of paint rather than a faithful representation of a subject.
The work has a real physical presence, with textures and surface not easily reproduced in print. Although abstract in nature his work makes direct reference to actual locations with much reference to rock strata and water surface.
Recent paintings inspired by the British landscape experiment with the re introduction of a figurative presence.
