Andrew M. Grant: Elements
The opening reception for the exhibit will be on Friday, February 15, from 7 to 9 pm in the Hannibal Square Heritage Center Visiting Exhibition Gallery. The exhibit will be on display from February 1 through April 6, 2019.
Andrew M. Grant is a Jamaican-born, Orlando based representational artist who specializes in figurative drawing and paintings in oil. Andrew received his formal art education at Crealdé School of Art where he became a Fellowship Artist and further developed his artistic skills and vision under former Painting & Drawing Director Terry Norris and assisted in a wide range of Crealdé’s community projects. In 2010-11 he studied privately with Carol Broman, and has since diligently honed his skills. His subject matter is primarily centered on depicting the nobility of the female form as women “have been the most consistent force in his life. He finds that “representing women, especially black women, acts as a homage he is paying for the nurturing, generosity and kindness he has experienced all his life.”
With this exhibition, curated by Barbara Tiffany, Grant’s intent is to create narrative paintings combining the female figure and symbolism, using traditional techniques with oil paint on wood panels or charcoal on paper. His new series, “Elements,” explores the four elements of earth, water, fire, and air, together with the female subject, to create a common theme that is visually compelling. During the exhibition run, Andrew will mentor a scholarship student in his drawing and painting techniques.
