The Frankie G. Weems Gallery features the work of Nathan Grimes. Born in the Great Smokey Mountains and raised in Florida, he is an expanded field painter concerned with interrelating various fragments. Grimes has shifted from formal non-representational abstraction to an expanded figurative painting. His narrative songwriting, sound experiments, and found objects have erupted into the realm of visual art. Desiring to contextualize these bodies of work, Grimes focused on them through the lens of his experience. HOME | BODY is a collection of psychophysiological self-portraits of the artist coping with the effects of his chronic traumatic childhood environment.
