Adele’s process involves scanning 19th century photographs and extracting the characters that she finds waiting for her in the past, then relocating them to new environments. She intertwines her subjects with creatures, great and small, and adds in delicate foliage and detail to build new worlds and new stories. She often draws on idioms, metaphor, and lyrics to inspire and add narrative to her work. Images are brought together using Photoshop (including her own drawings and paintings), printed then hand finished using inks, paint and gold leaf.
