Rives Granade

Rives Granade is an artist, born in Alabama, who now lives and works in Los Angeles. His work is concerned with the representation of "reality", and takes into account the constant flux that images and objects rest within. This flux often questions the nature of abstraction and our relationship to it. Granade is interested history, deterioration, memory, and the so called aleatoric factor involved in the process of creation. In 2011 he completed a large oil painting which is permanently installed on the side of a building in Norway.
