Grace Currie is an emerging artist based in Shropshire, originally from Manchester. In 2020 she graduated from Chester University School of Art with a First Class BA(Hons) Fine Art. Her final show comprised a series of large figure paintings showing an assortment of strange characters clearly on their way to the same anarchic party…
Since then, during the pandemic, Grace has continued to produce a wide range of artworks, paintings, collages, jewellery and ceramics, experimenting and consolidating her skills. Winter Garden is part of a series using colour to augment digital photographs and, as in this case, lift our spirits after a long winter.
Over the past five years she has exhibited in several group shows in Shropshire, Cheshire and London, including at the Qube and the Art of Caring 2019 (Conference Centre Gallery St Pancras London) and a solo show at Participate Artspace Shrewsbury (Terror and Joy 2019). Her work can be seen on Instagram (GraceCurrieArt) and her website (www.gracecurrie.art) where her work can also be purchased. In 2010, when she was 17, Grace experienced a serious road accident and severe brain injury. Her determined and talented creative responses to the subsequent challenges have informed but not dominated her artwork, which often expresses the frustrations and joys of her consequent neurodivergence.
