About the Artist
Grady Kimsey’s figures instantly arouse curiosity and a variety of emotions from viewers – a fact he attributes to echoes of their experiences. His figures are constructed from a diversity of materials such as blocks of wood, rusty nails and tatters of fabric. Kimsey paints, rips fabric, cuts up fur and uses crackle glazes baked in primitive sawdust. “Tableau” refers to a moment frozen in time which can be joyous, a mood which is surprising or an emotion which is recognized. Kimsey accomplishes this through the use of costumes and masks. His sculptures are found in many private and public collections. Mr. Kimsey resides in Winter Park.
