Audrey Grant

A figurative painter based in Edinburgh, Audrey studied in the early 2000s at Leith School of Art under Paul Martin and Philip Archer. Her work explores the human figure and the painted surface. Her subjects are mainly solitary and isolated figures and she is interested in the presence they evoke in an unspecified space. Her figures grow out of a dialogue with the paint and are invented and imagined, not specific to an individual.

Audrey has exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Glasgow Institute where in 2011 she was awarded the David Gilchrist Memorial Award. An elected professional member of Visual Arts Scotland, she won the Anne Redpath Award at their annual open in 2013.
