Gratrix speaks about her influences, noting that ‘generally [she] likes to look at German Expressionism, but individual artists that influence [her] currently are De Kooning, Phillip Guston and Maria Lassnig. Always Matisse and [she’s] been looking at Picasso’s later work recently along with Bhupen Khakhar and George Condo.’ Gratrix also says that her ‘point of departure is often a photo of someone on a phone or in a magazine, but through the drawing process people change and mutate’, with her representations having a sense of playfulness and humour.
