"There is humanism and empathy that one could feel by seeing a simple gesture or extreme facial tension," says Grace. She painted faces and bodily gestures from observation and journalistic photos that she found in the public library. Grace utilized a camouflage pattern to merge people and faces with decorative colors. "Within the harmonious colors, one starts to see faces and bodies emerging within a landscape-like terrain."

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.
