For more than a decade Calvin Grimm has been painting a body of work informed by his broad experiences with water and aquatic life. The 1970's saw him as a crew member and educator aboard the "flagship of the environmental movement" - the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. He was also a wilderness leader of Alaskan sea kayaking expeditions, and an explorer of the healthy coral ecosystem of the Belize and Yucatan coasts.

Grimm's hands-on life has provided an honest, accountable approach to all of his abstract renditions of the mysteries of our "water planet"."Having seen and felt so many extraordinary combinations of natural forms and energies I am free to paint from a surreal perspective, affirming collective awareness and primal symbols."


Painter and environmentalist, Grimm's organically grounded paintings reveal a personal collaboration with the forces of nature.
