DEREK WALTER GRUBAUGH
FIRST TWO CUTS
My work focuses on reactions to social, and environmental issues that that I find troublesome in our society. With rising populations, pollution, and world spread health epidemics, we find ourselves living in a constant state of fear and ignorance. I bring these issues to the viewer in a visual language that is meant to question, inspire, and create dialogue as to why and how we address the problems in our world. The work reflects personal feelings towards issues I find myself engaging with literal honesty and also an underlining sense of humor. The goal is to inspire change, and push forward conversation dealing with issues such as type II onset diabetes, water ecology, contemporary agricultural practices, and concepts of sustainability. Art has the power to evoke change, the power to make this world a better place for the present, and for the future.
