Hall Groat II Oil Paintings

The work presented within this slide show represents a cross-section of Groat’s larger scaled work made over the past fifteen years, ranging from classical compositions to atypical, symbolic arrangements.
Through the use of metaphor, Groat often explores contemporary subjects connected with both our consumer-driven culture and natural environment. Quirky associations, involving the machine, brand identity, food, monetary currency and nature, may serve as icons of consumerism, invoke hunger, or question the duality of nature and the machine.
Groat’s most recent work involving the billiards balls could be viewed as autobiographical, or an exploration of timelessness and merely about the meditative and formal process of seeing. Groat spent most of 2020-21 caring for elderly parents, and playing billiards daily was a form of  recreational therapy.  He believes painting has the potential to reveal the extraordinary within the mundane and overlooked, and is fascinated by the expressive possibilities of inanimate objects. Painting that merges modern art discoveries with a classical aesthetic, often pushes him toward subjects that blur the boundaries between the familiar and the unconventional.
