Artist Statement

Jeff Grant’s work is untrustworthy but honest. Its a combination of commonly assumed facts and ambiguous, shifting distinctions. He considers how history and memory contribute to the creative process of combining various elements into something recognizable, understandable, or relatable.

He works with objects and images that are common and recognizable, considering how they connect to remembered experiences and preexisting ideas that both contribute to and misguide forms of personal and social development. He is interested in our presumptions about learning, and he questions our dubious notion of maturity.
