About the Work

Resonance, 2024
red cedar, acrylic, lacquer finish

Strongly influenced by the natural environment, Grant’s stylised sculptures echo and amplify the fluid forms found in shells, seed pods and leaves. This work contrasts finely honed timber surfaces with heavily worked and painted areas. Previously Grant has joined two carved elements for the final form; here two separate pieces interact visually to create a single piece.
