About

Aquatint and sugarlift depicting a New York City worker climbing down into the subway Red Grooms was born in Nashville, Tennessee in 1937. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the New School for Social Research, New York. In the 1950's Grooms moved to New York City to immerse himself in the art scene. For nearly fifty years Grooms has combined color, vibrancy, and a generous dose of self-deprecating humor to produce art in all media that provokes and delights. He pokes fun at the icons of American politics, entertainment, and the art world, while paying homage to his subjects at the same time. No artist since Honoré Daumier has had a greater understanding of humor or a more direct connection to his audience. As a painter, sculptor, printmaker, filmmaker and theater designer, Grooms' career to this point has been prolific. His graphic works alone encompass an array of art forms including etchings, lithographs (two and three-dimensional), monotypes, woodblock prints and spray-painted stencils. Throughout the late 1980's and the mid 1990's Grooms devoted himself to a series of prints and three-dimensional works called New York Stories for which he is well known. The artist's work can be found in museums and private collections worldwide including the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois; Fort Worth Museum of Contemporary Art, Fort Worth, Texas; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York,; The Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, California; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Nagoya City Museum, Nagoya, Japan.
