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 recognizable, yet unfamiliar. 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 and sensation as a means of illuminating the border between real and imaginary—exposing their dichotomy—to explore our desire to identify with imagery that resembles things we already know, and draw from that tendency as an aperture to view something empirically new. Within this aesthetic, the spectator is invited to enter a space that gives a renewed perception to the means through which we conceive and assign meaning to form.
