Adonin explores the point of convergence between abstraction and surrealism, to create a channel of communication between his inner world and his audience. He strives to not only share his personal vision, but to invite his viewers to forge their own personal interpretations and narratives, by involving them both emotionally and intellectually. 

His approach to his work is without preconception, allowing first for randomness. Adonin then takes advantage of the mind’s ability to derive order out of chaos. He strives to move away from the copying of reality, toward creating a reality of his own.
