BARBARA GROSSMAN

Barbara Grossman, Returning, 26x20, oil

Barbara Grossman, Yellow Dog, 48x44, oil

Barbara Grossman is a figurative painter, whose figures in interior paintings explore both space and sharing color with complex patterns and implied narrative. The interaction of color and space is her subject.  The paintings, oil pastels and monoprints are about figures in interiors.  The figures create their own space and are defined by it. The color both participates in this as well as generates it.  It is characteristically bright and luminous.

Barbara Grossman received her BFA from Cooper Union in 1965. She attended the Akademie der Kunst in Munich, Germany while on a Fulbright Hays Grant in 1967–68. Grossman went to the Yale School of Music and Art in 1964. She has been a recipient of an Ingram Merrill Foundation Award in Painting (1982-83), Connecticut Commission on the Arts Awards (1977 and 2002), and the Henry Ward Ranger Fund Purchase Award at the National Academy of Design (2001).

Ms. Grossman exhibits extensively both in solo and group shows throughout the United States and is represented in numerous public and private collections. She was a founder of the Bowery Gallery where she exhibited for 37 years. Grossman is a member of the The National Academy of Design (Established in 1825 by artists in NY).  In 2004-05 A Survey of her work traveled to five colleges concluding the tour at the New York Studio School in New York. A longtime teacher, Grossman has taught at the University Pennsylvania, Chautauqua School of Art, Western Carolina University and she has been a visiting artist at Boston University, American University, Brandeis University, and many others. She was Artist in Residence at Dartmouth College, 2002 and Hollins University, 2003.  Barbara Grossman taught at Yale from 2003–2010.

“Calling the work “radiant and expansive,” Pardee gets to the heart of Ms. Grossman’s appeal. Here are color and pattern for their own sakes yet still tethered to the human figure in domestic interiors.”
