ADD: Chris Grant’s ceramic/sculptural work relates to American tradition, religion, myth and absurdity. He utilizes images of the American West, animal trophies, wooded landscapes, rural lifestyles and absurd representations of figures, animals and landscapes in an attempt to reconcile his actual experience as an American with the absurdity of the ideal American experience. Grant’s romantic notions of the world collide with anime, science fiction and religious imagery to create images that seem to tell a mythic story without specifying exactly what the story is regarding.
