Through her process of painting – cutting up – repainting Groobey’s figures become distorted to near abstractions. With their mismatched body parts and lurid skin tones, her canvases become reminiscent of early 20th century artists such as Picasso or Matisse, and she cites Degas, Hokusai, Georg Baselitz, and Paul Nash amongst her many influences. Groobey draws from this heritage in her fluid painting style which combines large areas of solid colour, accentuated outlines, and expressive gestures. Though her process is very intensive, her finished canvases are done quite quickly, allowing for a sense of spontaneity and play.
