Audrey Grant

 

Audrey Grant grew up in Grangemouth, Scotland. She is an award-winning painter whose practice includes drawing, photography and installation. Grant studied at Leith School of Art in Edinburgh as a mature student, before building a fifteen-year career as a figurative painter. Her work is underpinned by intellectual ideas derived from, and inspired by, poetry, literature and philosophy. Grant explored the complex nature of long-durational drawing in her first major public exhibition, The Long Look: The Making of a Portrait with the National Galleries of Scotland in 2019. Following awards from the Royal Scottish Academy and Creative Scotland, Grant expanded her practice into site-specific installation engaging with real and imagined landscapes. She has shown work nationally and internationally. She is currently Artist in Residence at the University of Stirling for 2023-24.
