About The Artwork

“On the Hard” is the phrase used for a boat out of the water in drydock, either for repair or winter storage. This is not a natural state for a boat and it is often not the best of times for the boat or it’s Captain. Frailties are exposed but the damage itself is really quite beautiful. Just as with humankind. Sometimes these worn surfaces often resemble the natural world the vessel was built to navigate and conquer. Other times the damaged and corroded bottom paint resembles abstract painting, calling to mind the history of the genre and it’s connection to industrialization. These are beautifully executed prints on Hahnemuhle fine art paper. They look more like pastel drawings or paintings than photographs.

or the past several years Grove's work has been landscape based. While there are never any figures in the work there is always the mark that people have left: industrial wastelands giving way to high rises, farmland and forests folding to create overgrown housing developments, automobiles distorting the scenery they were manufactured to speed through, and most recently boat hulls recording the stormy seascapes they were built to navigate . Signs of a “civilized” culture. The work distorts the landscape to show the damage we are doing to it. These are toxic environments we are creating by industry, human convenience, progress. Grove is the creator of the group "Thou Art Mom", which brings mother artists together for support and networking. She has curated two shows with the same title. Grove graduated from the School of Visual Arts in NYC with a BFA in Photography. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan. She has been published in numerous books, magazines, and newspapers and has pieces in public and private collections both in the United States and Europe.
