Grant Heaps

March 27 – April 20, 2024
Reception: Saturday, March 30, 12 – 5 pm
The Red Head Gallery, Toronto

The Red Head Gallery is pleased to present Welcome To My Home by member Grant Heaps.

Exhibit Statement:

Welcome to my home. This is a first look at how I live. The home I have, the home I dream of and the home I fear is mine. This is where my ideal world is formed and where it evolves. It’s somewhere between what I create and what I destroy. It’s a place I climb into and hide. It’s where I collect, save and make. It disguises the damage I do. So far I’m only showing you the pathway to my front door.

Artist Bio:

Grant Heaps is a Canadian born textile artist. Fascinated with fabric since childhood he has dedicated his life to its worship. He has spent his working life backstage in theatre wardrobe departments. He has been part of The National Ballet of Canada’s touring wardrobe department for 30 years. His obsessions are fabric, the discarded, decay, the end of the world, personal adornment, and home. Grant’s navigation through this difficult world is his drive to make art. His work is a process, slowly doing what is needed to actualize what he sees with his imagination. Pieces tend to be large and complicated with a nod to outsiders. Grant’s work has been shown at The Textile Museum of Canada, The Museum of Art and Design, NYC and most recently in NODE, a Red Head Gallery Exhibition.
