Grayson Chandler

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 illuminating the border between real and imaginary in order to explore our compulsion to identify imagery that feels familiar, and then draw from that impulse as an aperture to view something empirically new. Within this aesthetic, the spectator is invited to enter a space that gives renewed perception to the means through which we conceive and assign meaning to form.


“We may take it that the world is undoubtedly itself [i.e., is indistinct from itself], but, in any attempt to see itself, as an object, it must, equally, undoubtedly act so as to make itself distinct from and therefore false to itself.

In this sense, in respect to its own information, the universe must expand to escape the telescopes through which we, who are it, are trying to capture it, which is us.” 
― G. Spencer Brown, Laws Of Form
