William Grob, British artist, currently working in Berlin. William blends the real and surreal by integrating paint with photography, his personal perspective changes the narrative of the original photograph to create these weird and wonderful worlds.
Unlike familiar images of the female nude, like Titian’s “Venus of Urbino” which demonstrates both domesticity and sexualisation of women for the pleasure of men, Grob does not sexualise his subject or undermine her strength and being with any objectivity. He is able to see the individual truth and empower the beauty of her form, the exterior world coloured with flowers from which she emerges untouched never doubting her inner strength.
