In his recent work, Bob Adams plays with the idea of authorship, authenticity in art, and the relationship of original to reproduction through manipulation of found published images. Bob has also designed many public art projects within the valley, including Copper Falls at Camelback and Scottsdale road and the light rail public art at Montebello avenue and 19th avenue.

"My process of working is visual and emotional. An idea comes to me, and I usually let it stew for a bit, or, sometimes even, act impulsively. Art-making is instinctual and visceral, influenced by a gut-feeling. The artists selected for the Blind All Artists series, have had either a positive or a negative influence on me.
The images are simple collages of cut out faces. Nevertheless, I did not consider the work done until they were scanned and digitalized. In simpler terms, the artwork is the act of reproduction. In a perfect world, the work is meant to be seen as reproduction, prints of the digital forms installed in a space. That comes, I suppose, from the way I have known art since childhood. I did not go to an art gallery or a museum until I was in my teens, and that reality has fundamentally affected how I see art functioning."
