Historical Context:
Adam Tetzlaff received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Grand Valley State University in 1997. He has shown work in many local shows and competitions, including the Muskegon Museum of Art, the Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts and also the Grand Rapids Art Museum Sales Gallery. On his work, he states: "When I am working on a piece, I try not to think about what ideas I am trying to communicate. I let the ideas gradually seep out during the working process. Only when I am finished do I begin to discover what I have done through my subconscious. This time of reflection is like the prize at the end of a long treasure hunt."
