Artist Statement

Jozi Grant 4639lo I paint to stir up from below the surface of our shared existence that which is profoundly human and deeply meaningful. The human form is an incredible muse, and I visit it frequently in my work because of it’s rich beauty, intense challenge, and deep capacity for expression and nuance. Any subject, though, that may facilitate a deeper knowing and acceptance of ourselves and each other may find a place in my work. 

Beauty is a powerful force that I work to harness through technical skill, meaningful subject matter, and strong compositions Oil paint and drawing mediums, having been favored by the masters for centuries, are very old and beautiful mediums, and currently best support this process for me.
