Adam Scott Rote is a uniquely American painter, and his work draws equally on american architecture and classic cinema to create an enduring sense of aesthetic timelessness. Rote’s work throughout the last decade has been influenced by architecture, fashion, and classic cinema. He is a self-taught artist who studied early icons including pinup legends Vargas, Robert McGinnis, and master photographer George Hurrell. setting the stage for the elegant and realist styles his figures would garner. His art centers on representations of the human form that are not fully realized but transparent. “My figures are not ghosts,” he explains. “They are transparent rather than opaque for the goal of allowing the whole painting equal measure”.
Rote’s artwork has been described as “Modern Romanticism”, filled with “strong emotions such as trepidation, recklessness, and awe”. Utilizing acrylic, gouache paint, airbrush, and watercolor pencils simultaneously with brilliant emphasis on high contrast, Adam brings to life images of yesterday back to the present day.
