East Coast native David Gracie creates intimate paintings of everyday scenes or objects such as the night sky or tufts of grass in addition to an occasional portrait. These seemingly disparate subjects speak to an overarching theme of the “abstractness of human experience.” Gracie is an Associate Professor of Art at Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln, Nebraska.
