(Ever) since 2020, Grainger has been making ‘tangible joy’ with tubes of silicone and a simple caulking gun, producing bold works that straddle the fields of sculpture, painting, drawing and installation.

In 2022, group exhibitions included The Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition; The Royal Society of Sculptors Summer Show (after being elected a member in 2021); The Royal West of England Academy Annual Open and Wells Art Contemporary. The year also culminating in winning the inaugural Pangolin Digital Ltd Sculpture Prize.

From 2016-2021, Ever's material and process-led based practice concentrated on gaining skills in casting, metal and woodwork and working with unusual materials. Making artworks for outdoor installations along coastlines and works sited at their home-studio-garden. This included a two year project creating works for and curating a gallery/installation space and garden in a former rural cottage open to the public. 

Prior to 2016, exhibitions included New Contemporaries, Shoreditch Town Hall London, Bearspace London, Phoenix Gallery Brighton, Gothenburg Museum of Art Sweden, Glasgow International Art Festival, ESC Gallery Graz Austria and Gallery Works, Osaka Japan.

Grainger originally studied a BA in Fine Art at Birmingham School of Art, UCE, first experimenting with extruded silicone in their first year, and graduated with a first in 2003.
