Artwork

Grace was inspired by mythical female characters in greek legend. Utilizing print cutouts, she constructed a female head with multiple legs of hair, standing vertically in the center of the painting. "The female form symbolizes power and beauty in an uncanny way," Grace says of the composition. In the background, a shadow emerges to suggest the presence of a smaller figure within shallow depth.

Grace Cadence

Woodside, New York

Grace Cadence combines her traditional watercolor practice with a magazine cut-out collage subject. She cuts apart the images that surround us daily, that train us on notions of fashion and beauty. The finished works are either paintings or collages which layer abstract fragments to become a whole. Grace explains, "the interesting thing about figurative abstraction is the possibility for everyone to see it differently. A lot of my work defies straight interpretations but there is a unifying element of beauty and nature in all of them." Grace works from her living room art studio in Brooklyn, which transforms into a sea of paper after a few hours of work. When she's not painting, Grace loves trying recipes from around the world, exploring new places to eat, and teaching art locally.
