Adia Millett: force of nature
Working across a range of media — from paintings and textiles to sculpture and sound installation — Oakland-based artist Adia Millett creates bright, fractal compositions that skirt the boundary between landscape, figure and abstraction.
For Force of Nature, Millett spent six months in intermittent residency at di Rosa. Roaming the landscape, she harvested images, materials and sounds that were incorporated into a vibrant series of works exploring our ancestral connection to the earth.
