Grossmann’s landscapes maintain a serene and gentle quality. Soft hues and an economy of brushwork contribute to quietly contemplative scenes that offer a respite from the inundation of images one experiences in modern life. Restrained, complementary palettes, formal balance, and parallel markings give Grossmann’s paintings a pleasing rhythm and symmetry. When animals appear in the landscape, their presence is unobtrusive and ethereal. They, like the linear trees and rolling hills, further contribute to the viewer’s perception of peace and harmony.
