the artist

Born in Tucson Arizona in 1968. Adon grew up amidst the astonishing natural beauty of Mendocino County in Northern California. An enthusiastic admirer of the exquisite forms found in nature he considers evolutionary and geological processes the most accomplished of all sculptors. While deeply rooted in the forms found in nature Adon's earth art projects also reference ancient man made symbols and structures. Adon is fascinated with the deeply meditative nature of these projects and with creating site-specific, often ephemeral presences in nature. He has coined the term "geometamorphic" to describe these ecological creations, from "geo" meaning earth or land, "meta" meaning to transform or transcend and "morph" meaning form or shape. Adon currently lives in Santa Cruz California and works wherever materials present themselves.
