ABOUT THE ARTIST
Grayson graduated with a BFA from the University of North Texas. His exhibited works have featured oil paintings on canvas and wood panel, and watercolors on paper.
Fascinated by the intrinsic order and beauty of nature, Grayson’s work attempts to capture and abstract its character in a manner that is uncanny, yet familiar. Deeply curious about the forces that govern human reason and faith, his work probes the amphibious network linking logic, intuition, consciousness, and emotion. Through this perspective, we are encouraged to draw upon our own experience as a means of shaping the border between real and imaginary. Moreover, we are encouraged to explore how the shape of our experience shapes how we see, and how what we see is largely colored by what we can recognize. Within this aesthetic, the spectator is invited to enter a space that meditates on the means through which we conceive and assign meaning to form.
