Art Portfolio: Emily K. Grieves
"Cuando se Abre el Cielo" (When the Heavens Open) Acrylic on canvas by Emily K. Grieves
Today we feature the portfolio of Emily K. Grieves. She uses incredibly warm colours and likes to choose very symbolic subject matter. I like the contrasting fresh blues and hot orange tones. Emily is based out of Teotihuacan, Mexico.
"Emily K. Grieves received a BFA degree in art from the University of Montana in 1993, followed by study of art history in Berlin, Germany, as a Fulbright scholar. She lived in San Francisco, California, for 10 years where she began exploring symbology, mythology, and ritual in her artwork, drawing inspiration from the celebrations and mysteries of life, and showing her work in numerous exhibits around the Bay Area. As of 2004, she makes her home in Teotihuacan, Mexico, where she has been greatly influenced by the cosmological imagery left in the 2000 year old pyramids." - www.emilykgrievesart.com
