New Brow contemporary artist Juli Adams creates works with a narrative.

When I talk about myself as an artist, the house I grew up in has to be mentioned as a character. There was Mother, Father, Brother, House. It was a refuge, a beloved and familiar place. It appeared in my dreams as an endless series of surreal pathways. It showed me secret things, and revealed concepts that I understood as feelings but couldn't express in words. It was a mystery, and I fiercely loved it.

The next important character who formed me was the outdoors, and the relationship it had to my house. I got in trouble with my father when I left my window open in the winter. I couldn't breath if the outdoors was shut out. I loved early spring when the migrating birds came back. There was one bird in particular. The first time I heard it I thought I could have died right then. It was the most beautiful birdsong I've ever heard. (I've still never seen this sensitive little thrush who no longer sings in my old neighborhood but has moved deeper into the mountains where you can still hear it in the spring). I could hear silence and distance, children playing, lawn mowers, a dog barking. It was auditory observation that was both absorbing and peaceful. This too was a refuge.
