Project Description

GRACE IS A MIXED MEDIA ARTIST BASED IN BROOKLYN AND UPSTATE NEW YORK, WHERE SHE CREATES BOTH TWO AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL WORK TO TELL STORIES OF TRIUMPH. CONTINUALLY PREOCCUPIED WITH THE CONCEPT OF PERSONAL “DEMONS,” HER WORK REFLECTS THE INTERNAL STRUGGLES THAT PLAGUE US ALL, CREATING VISUAL EXPRESSIONS OF THOSE DARK LITTLE THOUGHTS THAT ARE AT ONCE FRIGHTENING AND SORT OF FUNNY. MUCH OF HER WORK STEMS FROM THE BELIEF THAT THESE PERSONAL DEMONS ARE NOT NECESSARILY ENEMIES BUT, RATHER, ASPECTS OF OUR SELVES THAT CAN BE UTILIZED FOR GOOD. THE FIGURES IN GRACE’S DRAWINGS, PAINTINGS AND SCULPTURES ARE MANIFESTATIONS OF HER HOPES FOR HERSELF AND FOR CREATURES EVERYWHERE. WITH EACH DIFFICULT EXPERIENCE, OUR ARMOR GROWS AND WE BECOME THE WARRIORS OF OUR OWN WORLDS
