ANDREW GRAVES in ’30 Artists 30 Days’

*I make oil and sometimes tempera paintings, mostly on panel. They are
abstract, but for me always contain a certain figurative reading. A
geometric grid in a painting may be derived from the textile of a shirt, or
an outline of a landscape. My paintings work through an understanding of
abstraction, in light of conceptual practice and specifically in the
context of European and mid century American painting.
