The Fence, like many of Groobey’s paintings, adopts an earthy palette, using organic blues and greens to make her artificial bodies seem more natural. The play between landscape, figuration, and abstraction is important to Groobey’s work. In The Fence the recognisable elements of the painting become almost illusions of the viewer’s imagination. The figure is a mere suggestion of spontaneous marks, a subliminal apparition within a ground of rich colours and textured brushwork. How viewers respond to this painting echoes Groobey’s process: her lush surface provides ‘clues’ or ‘raw information’ for the viewer to assemble and embellish.
