Jeff Grant understands his head drawings to be "studies in the coexistence of determined facts and shifting, ambiguous definitions." It appears as if the vaguely outlined head delivers "established facts", while the dots and circles, which come to be perceived as eyes and mouths, represent the changeability and ambiguity. Grant's focus is on the inextricable interweaving of concepts such as "instability, elusiveness and fragility" with "anything solid, specific and precisely defined" (Grant).
