Adam is intrigued by the power and beauty of the sea. He employs a palette f rich, exotic colours to evoke the changing moods and mysteries of the oceans, the ships which sail upon them and those whose lives are entwined with the fortunes of the waves. He is fascinated by the creation of a mythical, magical atmosphere which involves the viewer in the whimsical story of each picture.
