If You Know, You Know. February 3 - 15, 2024
An exclusive collection of works by Grant Leier!
This is not a retrospective but a present-tense narrative of an evolving artist we've cherished for more than four decades. 42 NEW paintings hosted between Edmonton, AB and Victoria, BC.
This work is a vibrant dialogue between Grant and his partner and constructive critic, Nixie Barton. Their Nanaimo kitchen, which doubles as a studio, is the site of their daily dance of creativity. The couple's exchanges are often as passionate as the art, blurring the lines between a lovers' tiff and a comedian's banter.
Nixie's candid observations, "You're screwing it up, Grant!" cut through the air with a startling affection that only those who truly experienced their rhythm can appreciate.
If You Know, You Know resonates with the rhythm of their unique language, a language of bold patterns, spirited debates, and the resounding affirmation that love weaves into art. So, indeed, if you know, you know.

Graff's mastery of mixed media is evident in his dramatic paintings that seamlessly weave together the opulence of metallic leafing, the subtlety of transparent colour glazes, and the sleek finish of high-sheen resin. This chemistry of materials breathes life into his canvases, crafting a dance of depth and luminosity that invites the viewer to explore every inch.
We invite you to step closer, let your eyes wander, and allow your mind to engage with the elemental forces that inspire David Graff's extraordinary art.
