Fiona Grady

Fiona makes large site-responsive drawings on walls, windows and floors using sequences of dispersing geometric shapes. Printmaking plays an important role in her practice, allowing her to experiment with motifs, colours and textures while creating a more permanent record of a fleeting muse... Light.

While site-specific drawings remain at the heart of her practice, Fiona’s prints reflect and in many ways pre-empt the ideas and rhythmic, system-based approach of her installations. Paper stencil screenprinting allows her to work intuitively, experimenting with new ideas and making decisions on the fly, while iridescent inks lend a lustrous quality to her mark making. Her cut-vinyl window artworks continue to evolve and turn heads. Created for Fractions (our 2017 E17 Art Trail exhibition), Afternoon Ratio prompted a new commission for the visitor centre at Walthamstow Wetlands. Fiona's recent window works include, amongst others, Broadgate London, Flowers Gallery (for their Dialogues group show), and Chapter Gallery, Cardiff. Her Look Up editions reflect an ongoing desire to explore the rhythmic, changeable qualities of light.
