Chris Gregson

ChrisGregson

“One frustration I have overcome is disposing paintings that I could not resolve. Now, I’m able to rework surfaces so the pieces have a deep history. Some paintings take as long as five years to complete. What I let in are the impulses feeding my immediate physical, intellectual and emotional world. What I keep out is a planned agenda, signature style and pre-conceived painting formula. It is about problem solving and that moment of inspiration.”
