We are having a back room show of work by painter Barbara Grad. Grad describes her paintings as a "collision of perspectives" that allude, through their nonfigurative images, to the tensions associated with modern society and its effects on us as individuals. Each painting is made up of two attached canvases that communicate with each other in an unpredictable manner. This creates volatile connections in the work, which call into question what we perceive as representation and abstraction.
Barbara Grad has her M.F.A from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she resided before moving to Massachusetts. She has been a professor of painting at Massachusetts College of Art since the early 1980s. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries nationwide. Her work is currently on view in a solo show called Video Villa at the Kemper Museum of Art in Kansas City, KA.
