Glenn Grubbs is a contemporary artist and architect. Born and raised in Washington, DC, he has been working out of Phoenix, Arizona for the past 20 years. He holds the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and the Masters of Architecture degrees from Arizona State University. Glenn is nationally certified in the U.S. as an architect, and has designed a number of buildings in the Phoenix metro area. He is exhibiting paintings and drawings at open house for his studio in Twentynine Palms, CA, on the first Thursday evening of each month from October 2011 to April 2012.
Glenn’s art is deeply rooted in process, exhibiting discipline and diligence in pursuing a motif or idea. His outlook is forward-looking and experimental, believing that the art object is a palimpsest resulting from the work of creation.
His oeuvre navigates three fundamental aspects of consciousness; perception, memory and imagination. The oscillating nature of this vision and heuristic use of many types of media should not be confused with lacking focus, as Glenn has said, ‘I’m not portraying the world, I’m creating one.’
