An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Graceann Warn.
Graceann Warn, American, born 1955, was raised in New Jersey. In 1978 she graduated with a degree in landscape architecture. Later, while pursuing a Master’s in Landscape Architecture at the University of Michigan and working as a landscape architect, she visited an exhibition of the last paintings of Mark Rothko. The emotional impact of that exhibition was the catalyst for great change.
Within a year she made the decision to devote her life to making art. She has been a full time studio artist since 1985 with work exhibited and collected nationally and internationally.
She lives in in Ann Arbor, Michigan with her husband Geoff, Mini and Indie.
“I paint and I construct. Both my paintings and assemblages use the metaphor of excavation. My formal education
in landscape architecture and classical archaeology provides structure to artistic flights of fancy that always seem to revolve around some form of revelation:
The attempt to unearth an object or solve a mystery.
