Grady Gordon is originally from santa fe, nm. in the high-desert he grew up alongside various art forms, most notably the native American ‘katchina’ wood carvings of numerous spirits. these spirits allowed him to investigate the world beyond our limit. The japanese ‘yokai’ are also another great source of inspiration.
In his prints, grady searches for xrayz of mortality, the face behind the veil, and aims to illuminate what is staring back at us.
The monotype print is a study of impermanence. unlike other forms of printmaking the monotype offers only one copy. the original image on the plate is then given back to the ether, back into the fabric.
Grady has shown work in santa fe, los angeles, london, and paris.
