About the artist

Red Grooms

Working as a painter, sculptor, installation artist, printmaker, performance artist, and filmmaker, Red Grooms (born 1937) has become one of the most versatile and eccentric artists of the twentieth century. Originally born in Nashville, but living most of his life in New York City, Grooms is known for his stylized portraits of people and modern urban life in the city imbued with whimsy and humor. These scenes from daily life often lend themselves to a caricatured version of reality, a cartoon-like quality frequently visible in quotidien scenes of city life. Grooms is perhaps best known for extending his own depictions of the world into life-sized environmental constructions, most famous being Ruckus Manhattan, constructed in 1975. The installation included a thirty foot tall model of the World Trade Center, a fifteen foot Statue of Liberty, and a swinging Brooklyn Bridge. Grooms continues to live and work in New York City. His works are held in the collections of thirty nine museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, among others.
