Born in Memphis, TN, Grier Edmundson has been developing an on-going body of work over the last several years which deals on the one hand with the conceptual and formal histories of the medium of painting (and, to a somewhat lesser degree, with those of drawing, printmaking, and sculpture); and, on the other, a western historical narrative of Modernism; examining the parallels and moments of repetition, overlap and divergences within these two histories. Grier Edmundson holds a B.A. in Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and an M.A. in Fine Arts from the Glasgow School of Art. He has had recent solo exhibitions at Kendall Koppe Gallery (Glasgow), Fourteen30 Contemporary (Portland), Battat Contemporary (Montreal) and PowerHouse (Memphis). His work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions including the 2011 Quebec Triennial (Montreal), I’m Not Here: An Exhibition without Francis Alÿs at the de Appel Arts Centre (Amsterdam) and Glasgow International 2008. He lives and works in Montreal where he is currently a resident at the Darling Foundry.
