Grant Barbour

In my practice, I am constantly collecting images, patterns and narratives, both imagined and referenced. I view all of my work, regardless of the material, as a collage. My interest lies in the juxtaposition of objects, figures, and how they relate to the space they inhabit. These assembled works with all their strange, tragic, and darkly comedic elements are the most genuine way for me to describe my dreams, queer desires, fears, and memories.”
