Adam Belt has explored the inherent properties of materials in order to show their potential and reveal the unseen forces that shape our physical world. His artwork and contemporary sculptures are at once minimal and deep in meaning about the world around us. His interest in the environment has led his art practice to correlate with the sciences, from geology to astronomy, and his explorations are portrayed through unique and exciting means.


Belt received his M.F.A. from Claremont Graduate University in 2001, an experience that helped shape his practice while living so close to Joshua Tree National Park. Adam’s work has been exhibited at a variety of museums and galleries locally and nationally including; the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville AR, Franklin Parrasch Gallery, New York, NY, RCM Galerie, Paris, FR and Wonderspaces a traveling exhibition. His work is included in many private and public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the La Jolla Athenaeum Music and Arts Library and the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation, Santa Fe, NM. He and his wife Wendy currently reside north of San Diego with their daughter Ruby. They have explored and hunted for rocks and minerals throughout the desert southwest, the coast of California and the Rocky Mountains.
