Artist Statement

Grace Sweeney strives to create paintings that are representative of reality and psychologically intriguing. Quite spaces for reflection or strange juxtapositions occur frequently in her work. These paintings have aspects of contemporary people, objects, places, and a classical palette and composition. There is mystery in the lack of clear narrative and the potential for self reflection and subjective curiosity.

Artist Bio

Sweeney spent her early years learning from her father and graduated from the Baltimore School for the Arts and the Maryland Institute College of Art. Throughout her education she has spent time painting in France, Italy, and Norway.
