ARTIST STATEMENT What drives my painting ambition is the attempt to translate what I see, a particular composition or arrangement of objects in space, light and colour onto canvas using oil paint squeezed from a tube. If I can convey what I see in my mind into a 2 dimensional painting which other people appreciate and enjoy then so much the better. The pleasure (and sometimes torture) comes from the creative act, in finding the colours, molding the shapes, evoking a mood or sensation. My work is figurative in style and the subject matter varies depending on where I am and what I ‘notice’. I sometimes use my photographs as source material as I prefer to paint in my studio. I take inspiration also from other artists e.g. Morandi, Uglow and Katz, and was strongly influenced by Jo Volley, my tutor at the Slade. I paint to communicate, but also to contemplate and appreciate my world. It gets me up in the morning.  BIO; IRENE GRANT (BA hons) Calle Rueda 17, Competa, 29754 (Malaga), Spain Mobile; +34 652 060 292 email; in the UK; Nationality; British (born in Scotland 1946) Studied fine art and graphic design at Gray’s school of art, Aberdeen.
