David Adamo is a sculptor avant la lettre due to his engagement with form and materiality. His sculptures of chipped away wood express this interest in the materiality of the object.

These sculptures are often surrounded by the wooden fragments that were chopped off, thereby referring to the creation process of the sculptures. In his humorous small-scale sculptures Adamo plays with the expectations of the audience. These sculptures appear to be everyday objects, but by further examining them it becomes clear that the objects are removed from their traditional context due to the use of impossible materials.
