Painter Deborah Grant's collage-style canvasses pulsate with a kind of social energy rarely found on a flat surface. Pop culture icons, political heroes and anti-heroes, corporate logos, and religious imagery are layered into cohesive works with a "ferocious graphic quality". Her work has been exhibited at Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT; The Studio Museum of Harlem, Triple Candie, ArtOMI, all in New York; Inman@Lawing Gallery, Houston, TX; Post Gallery Los Angeles; The Berkeley Art Museum (Matrix 228), UC Berkeley; Steve Turner Contemporary, Los Angeles; Drawing Center, New York; and she has received a Skowhegan Fellowship and a Tides Foundation Grant. Grant received her BFA in Painting from Columbia College, IL, and her MFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art, Elkins, PA.
