Barbara Grad’s paintings are a personal vision of our current world. They are painted with oils and inspired by observation, memory and a love of a painted space. Using color, natural light, and invention the paint is layered and veiled to create a balance of reality and abstraction. The connection and dislocation are instinctively discovered through the paint itself. While respecting the beauty of nature these works are fragmented to reinvent the landscape in the present tense.
