The themes of Grant's art include race, history and politics, while her methods involve a combination of collage elements taken from print sources and her own painted, drawn and cut-and-paste imagery. She often references famous artists, include self-taught figures like Bill Traylor. Indeed, her work employs a punchy graphic style that mixes folk art, street art and comic-book narrative to undeniably appealing effect. This show presents a series that imagines a meeting between African-American folk artist Mary A. Bell and Henri Matisse.
