Meredith Grimsley, MFA
- Chair of the Department of Art and Art History, Professor
B.F.A., University of Georgia; M.F.A., University of Georgia
Her work, including wearable art, installation, performance, two-dimensional and three dimensional forms, has been shown in numerous national venues. Recognizing the parallel presence of joy and pain in her life, Meredith Re’ Grimsley generates work that reflects moments of meditation over spiritual growth, faith, sacrifice and a pursuit of grace. She reveals a longing which drives her to seek God. Each piece confronts her fears, loss of innocence, intolerances and moments of life changing transition. Examining her coupled questioning and celebration of her spiritual practices, she reaches for a deeper psychological connection with the viewer through simultaneously revolting and comforting imagery.
