Nancy Wisti Grayson

Nancy Wisti Grayson’s images deal with reminiscence of objects, places, or art historical memories. The pieces have an aged physicality through the use of layers of surface, materials or color. Using the tropes of artifact, postcard, ruin, and souvenir, a sense of nostalgia, humor, and the fragmentation of memory is expressed through abstracted narratives with a somewhat askew anchor to familiarity.
Currently based in Chicago, Nancy Wisti Grayson received her undergraduate and graduate degrees in painting from Wayne State University in Detroit.
