Backstory. On the week of the opening I met with Adams at his art studio in San Jose. It’s not easy for an artist to have someone in the room while they work, especially while finishing pieces for a solo show that opens that week. So we caught up outside the studio, before Adams took me through his art work. I set up the mic with camera in hand off to the side and observed his experimental multi-layered process for the next hour. After the room filled with fumes from layers of paint on wood and 2 decks, we took a break for the interview.
*** This is an excerpt from the short feature on Jason Adams (The Kid) for his solo show “Kill Yourself Laughing” at the Pretty Pretty Collective in San Francisco.
