Fairy Tales and Reveries
October 2, 2009 – October 31, 2009
Fairytales and Reveries, by local artist John Grant, is an exquisite series of photographs that captivate the viewer with their beauty, sensitivity, and enigmatic narrative implications.
Highly detailed photographic scans of cut flowers, taxidermied insects and natural ephemera such as feathers, eggs, and fungi are set amongst brooding and shadowy landscapes. Often the ripple in a pool of water or the edge of a bird’s wing in flight suggests a just departed presence in an otherwise still life.
John Grant’s work has been exhibited throughout the region, including the Kathleen Ewing Gallery in Washington, DC, and Page Bond Gallery in Richmond.
