Deborah Grant: Bacon, Egg, Toast in Lard / MATRIX 228

May 31–October 11, 2009

Deborah Grant's paintings are densely layered with marks and meanings drawn from popular media, history, and personal experience. The centerpiece of her MATRIX exhibition views contemporary concerns-race, sexuality, violence-through the surprising prism of an imagined meeting between painter Francis Bacon and comedienne Jackie “Moms” Mabley.

  • Deborah Grant: Suicide Notes to the Self, 2008 (details); oil, archival ink, paper, flashe paint, and enamel on five birch panels; 72 x 240 in.; courtesy of the artist and Steve Turner Contemporary, Los Angeles.
