London-based artist Brad Grievson’s work is heavily involved with the possibilities for expanded notions of drawing. For several years he has engaged basic materials such black cotton fabric and carbon paper. Formally elegant, and remarkably violent at once, these works are composed from various torn and cut sections that are laid and arranged into configuration before being fixed onto canvas with a clear adhesive medium. They veer from the morbidly abstract towards the more vaguely literal, in which fragments of words and partial sentences start to appear.
He has had solo exhibitions at VI, VII in Oslo, ROKEBY in London, and Carl Kostyál in Stockholm.
