Groover’s tabletop still life transforms mundane objects into a mysterious assemblage, an example of the artist’s commitment to using photography’s formal potential to create complex, abstract spaces within a limited depth of field. Groover is critically acclaimed for her contribution to elevating photography as a form of contemporary fine art, and her work is included in several major museum collections.
