Exploring Intimacy: In Gribbon's artistry, the paramount theme is intimacy, explored both implicitly and explicitly. She masterfully navigates her roles as a mother and her discovery of queerness in her depictions, capturing the profound moments of pure joie de vivre.

Through her compelling work, Gribbon challenges viewers to confront their own gaze and its implications.
