Friend of the Household: Some work from my solo show over the summer at Scoops LA.
About Friend of the Household
"Friend of the Household" playfully explores the symbiotic relationship between people and their plants. Houseplants require human care to flourish, and can reflect in their appearance a happy nurturing care person or one that is distracted or inattentive. Responding to more than just the movements of sunlight, they become participants – not just observers – in the day to day activities of a household. In turn, these plants reward attentive and sensitive care with their beauty, sweet scents, or delicious taste.
Grace seeks to capture that lush responsiveness and the quirky characteristics of different plants, suggesting links to their owners. Often subtly personifying the plants she renders, the colors, and sweet, silly style of these paintings and drawings speak to the animation of these living friends that grace our homes.
