Grant Whipple's new paintings lure the viewer into the

liminal space between abstraction and representation,

where the protracted moments of crisis create a

heightened awareness to one's sensory perceptions. 

Born in Chicago, he received his BA from DePauw

University and an MFA from Michigan State

University.  He has exhibited in galleries nationally and

internationally including Baltimore, Chicago, New

York, Texas, and Brazil.  Currently Grant lives in

Baltimore, where he teaches Drawing and Painting.
