Grant Netherlands

Grant finds painting a wonderful way of going deeper into the beauty of the present moment. While painting, time seems to disappear as forms take shape on the canvas.
There is a deep sense of peace in the way he experiences the creative process.
The finished painting then becomes a record, a history, and physical evidence of the creative process in action. Subject matter, light, form and colour are key aspects to his work.

He hopes it is evident to anyone looking at his artwork that he has a profound respect for nature and form, particularly as it is revealed in various qualities of light and shade. Painting light and colour in its various expressions has been a passion of his from the beginning. His approach is basically inspired by curiosity, dream state and consciousness. He primarily works in his studio overlooking the sea, an incredible source of inspiration.
All styles and techniques are interesting to him, and he explores many of them, incorporating them when he can into his painting. Therefore his personal painting method is a combination of many techniques and of course his own signature!

Grant's work is regularly exhibited and sold in Abu Dhabi and the UK.
He has held regular exhibitions of his work.

"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint', then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced". Vincent Van Gogh
