TRACY TAYLOR GRUBBS

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Everything changes, and yet we navigate our way through the world by relying on the familiar surface appearance of things. My paintings search for visual clues, metaphors and states of grace that might illuminate how the world of solid surfaces can exist alongside or within the ever-present backdrop of impermanence and change. As the Dalai Lama has said, “You cannot look in one direction to see reality, you have to see in three or four or seven dimensions.” My intention is to open a window, at least for a moment, where the static experience of a stationery view gives way to the ecstatic possibilities of the ephemeral.
