Adcock takes a minimalistic route with Trompe l'oeil painting leading to frameless paintings of building materials. The paintings resemble common flat surfaces that accumulate the illusion of physical information from hours or years of labor, use, and reuse. This illusionistic quality allows the paintings to be viewed as minimalist sculptures, which enables the work to be experienced as found objects or ready-mades.

Trompe l'oeil artist Anthony Adcock received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Chicago and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a specialization in oil painting from the American Academy of Art.
