Tessa Grundon

Winter Workspace 2013
Glyndor Gallery | January 2 – March 24, 2013  

When Tessa Grundon paints a landscape she uses materials found within that landscape. In an ongoing series, the artist has been creating images of rivers using mud from the river banks and beeswax found in the hives of beekeepers along the same stretch of river. Grundon has focused on the Stour River in England. At Wave Hill, she will explore a river on our side of the Atlantic—the Hudson.  Grundon grew up in the Middle East, the United Kingdom and the United States and now lives in New York City. She has shown at the R & F Encaustic Works International Biennial, at the small works exhibition at 80 Washington Square East Galleries and at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn. Grundon has studied at the Art Students League of New York, New Academy of Fine Art and Parsons The New School for Design.
