William Grob takes many influences from the rural aesthetic he was raised in from natural elements, ornate stonework and his carnal intrigue of fire. Struggling to verbally communicate in his younger years Grob chose instead to express himself pictorially and physically through the inspiration of the great expressionist painters Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse and Van Gogh. He uses photography and painting as a means of communication, by integrating paint with photograph he gives the ability to add multiple points of perspective. What we perceive is not what we necessarily see when we live in a world which holds no truths and no answers, only beliefs. His belief is in seeing more and showing both a physical truth and an emotive honesty. Photography holds as many lies as truths so by synthesizing painting with photographs he projects a visualisation that captures both the instant, and the immortal.
