Donald Groscost
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg



ARTIST STATEMENT: This recent body of work continues my investigation and dialogue with the fragmented world of the hyperreal and its relation to our immediate environment as a source of information “overload”. My primary interest lies in the observation of natural phenomena and the systems they inhabit. While exploring the natural world through the arena of memory and the subconscious, a myriad of cultural references as disparate as animated films, children’s books or visual technologies often collide simultaneously. Within this construct it is my attempt to organize states of feeling whereby the rhythms and complexities of nature and culture merge into a singular given form. When all goes well I hope to arrive at an image of “inevitability” where something akin to a true force of nature manifests itself. In a catalogue essay for two recent exhibitions in Japan, the critic Robert Morgan wrote: …Donald Groscost’s perception of nature is neither present nor absent. Rather it goes in the direction of transforming the way we perceive the natural world, not through technological interference or its consequential detritus, but through envisioning a possibility where representation and abstraction declare a new visual structure.
