Being a bit presumptuous here...but some of you may have been wondering 'where did this guy go?'. Well, the short answer is I've been approaching sustainability from an artist's point of view. Writing has taken a back seat.
I've been painting my way to clearer understanding of our connection with the planet we live on. This has resulted in a body of work you can see here examining our natural environs, using both traditional and
(increasingly) not so traditional landscape techniques. My medium is pastel, and I can be seen with this wonderfully portable palette out on the marshes of Essex, or on the rocks of Cape Ann, or further down the Maine Coast...figuring out how to translate what I'm seeing and what it's telling me. Which is, basically, let's learn how to tread more lightly on our surroundings.
I call my site Understanding Place (otherwise known as www.larrygrob.com) and it's developing nicely into a visual portfolio, a sustainability thinking site, and a place where I can engage with people interested in sustainability oriented communication projects. Check it out.
Incidentally, if anyone's interested, the site was built using Prosite, which is a marvelous platform for creatives of all types to share their work and aspirations. It's from Behance. My Behance artist portfolio can be seen here.
