VIEW IN MY ROOM
I first began photographing in these “pop up” neighborhoods while visiting a friend who lived in one. I soon noticed that they were sprouting up everywhere there was once farmland. These clusters of mcmansions with three car garages were all arranged without any common area, are clearly were meant to be houses, not homes in a community. These unoccupied streets are named after the natural elements their construction replaced. The straight photographs did not convey this sense of eerie isolation or the environmental impact so I began to manipulate the images in Photoshop. This is what I really see when I walked these streets. This work is a digitally altered photograph printed on canvas, on stretcher bars with wire hanging system.

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.
