Grace is very interested in how a picture is viewed when taken out of context, and what might happen if it is reassembled in a different configuration. In this piece, she painted an array of small images next to one another, forming a puzzle-like arrangement. "The work was done intuitively and painted in a single-chance method," Grace says. She finds that the irregularity of the edges makes the painted picture take on the quality of an object. The work has irregular edges. it comes in a matte ready to frame. The artwork without matting measures 10.5" x 10.5" and the total size of the work with matting is 16.5" x 16.5".

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.
