"Ms. Groh mixes a unique art cocktail; her ingredients include postmodern theory, philosophy, geometry, intelligence, and academia with a love of brushwork and dripping. Color comes from the land she lives in. Colorado's palette is different from Sweden's oceanside and Brooklyn's city beat. Changing light, storms, and Sweden's fog — when confronted by nature, Ms. Groh responds with her palette and the tone of the paintings. Landscape begets beauty and spirituality and is foundational. In NY, Barbara's work evolved using materials including cold wax, beeswax, paraffin, and detritus, and her colors toned to the harsh burnout look of Brooklyn, NYC. Babel: the confusion of voice rang loud in her ears."
