Nancy Wisti Grayson

Found mementos or archaeological artifacts that reference memories of a moment of time, art history or reminiscence of place are simulated in my sculptural paintings.

Using the tropes of the fragment, ruin and souvenir, a sense of mystery and nostalgia for the past is evoked through abstracted narratives.
