About the Against the Grain:
A core principle of Strata Gallery is to feature artists whose work in some way does not fit into recent or current aesthetic, ideological, thematic, representational or commercial trends within the art world. Against the Grain focuses on work that in some way counters contemporary tendencies or fashions in recent visual art. Such work might be unconventional in terms of materials, format, representational methods, concept, emotional range, predominant mood, visual, cultural or historical references, viewpoint, politics, narrative, expressive impetus, relationship to tradition, motivation, narrative devices, subject matter, or composition.
