Waveism: The effect on the sides of the Slot Canyons near the Grand Canyon from flood waters is the inspiration for these works of Art. Taking the photos of the slot canyon, while my family and I were exploring them, served as my inspiration. The End Result is what the term Waveism is all about!!
Next up for Grubbs is what she calls her Waveism period. Inspired by a family trip to the Grand Canyon and working from reference photos taken by her son, she is studying the dramatic erosion patterns in the slot canyons created by flood waters.
“For these works I am using acrylics, since I can use quite a bit of paint and it moves better than oil paint,” she says. “Over my base painting, I drag a tool that combs through the paint, blending the colors and creating patterns and ridges. I hope to exhibit this body of work in the upcoming summer and autumn shows here in New England.”
