Greg’s collection “Landscapes Remembered and Imagined”, invites you to slow down and experience the quiet stillness he aimed to evoke in each of his pieces.
His vision is to create places which have a sense of familiarity about them and which draw the viewer into a spiritual feeling of peaceful solitude. They are as much about the inner landscape as they are the outer landscape. They mostly involve open vistas with nearby water and distant views. Many are at the beginning or end of day or at early moonlit evening. The landscapes he paints are sometimes based on real places, but are more usually created from imagination with reference to his memory of a place and its atmospheric potential.
Greg only recently came to painting and finds significant joy in the creative process—its solitude, flow and serenity. He started out on a whim, wanting to teach himself how to draw. This whim has turned into a serious pursuit of an artistic vision. This vision is informed by the encouragement and work of his teachers—Jason Alden at the River Gallery School and Dennis Sheehan, America’s foremost living landscape tonalist. He also finds inspiration in the late 19th century tonalist landscape artists, especially George Innes and Alexander Wyant.
