Grant describes his most recent work as an inquiry into the intersection of “two worlds, the visible and the invisible.” This is evident in the way he layers recognizable subjects – a deer, a bird, a marble column, a leaf – with fields of pure color and texture. Both the representational images and the atmospheric passages overlap and act as half-seen hints; there is clearly much beneath the visible surface.
Grant was born in Braidwood, New South Wales, Australia and today lives in Canberra, Australia’s capital city. He has participated in both group and solo exhibitions around Australia.

About the ExhibitionFragmented Reality: An Exhibition in NYC
With gusto and energy, Agora Gallery’s exhibition Fragmented Reality boasts over one hundred artworks by twenty artists. Angela Di Bello and her team have curated a remarkable exhibition which stages an interrogation of the dynamic balance of feminine and masculine energies while eschewing both romanticism and politics. Instead it solicits contemplation of three focused concepts: the interpretation of humans and animals within a shared environment; portraiture and abstract landscapes; and opposing forces, such as happiness and sadness, pleasure and pain. Presiding over the stunning visual space, the participating artists have conjured an airy grace from an immense application of bright colors and mixed media which all come together effortlessly in this comprehensive exhibition of fine art.
