The Latest from Greg's Studio
Sketches from a waking dream...
The images above and below were conceived by Greg whilst recovering in hospital from an accident in which he, amongst other things, sustained a brain injury, and are the basis for current painting works.
Underwear makes Brief Appearance at SOTE
September 20, 2015
Greg unveiled his latest work at Sculpture on the Edge, where he took out first place in last year's competition with his fascinating work, Lighfboat.
This year's entry is titled 'Underwear', and is Greg's dig at the stalemate that has arisen from the political mess surrounding the submarine contract and South Australia.
You can read about the work, and Greg's Artist Statement that accompanies it on its own page, here:
Current Work Submersed... or is it?
August 16, 2015
Greg is gearing up for the next exhibition he is showing his work in - this time it is 'Sculpture on the Edge' at beautiful Maleny. Greg took out first prize in last year's SOTE, and he is looking forward to taking part again this year.
The work has started. This time he is taking the viewer on a hair raising ride through the air and under the ocean in this work that draws inspiration from submarine design, early airplane construction and notions of balance and suspension... the result should be both confounding and magnetic.
Wood and metal again feature in this piece that addresses the recent debacle in the South Australian submarine construction industry, and critiques the state of play in our dwindling industrial sector.
Stay tuned... and visit Sculpture on the Edge this year to see the final work. The event is being held September 12 - October 18, 2015, at Spicers Tamarind Resort, 88 Obi Lane, South Maleny. See the website
It's another First Prize!
August 10, 2015
Greg did it again, with another First Prize, again with his remarkable work, Lighfboat.
The prize was awarded at the 4 Island Festival, held on the Southern Moreton Bay Islands during August, 2015.
Lighfboat was popular with the crowds, and fascinated old and young alike. It also provided a fitting bakdrop to the festival's 'Dress LIke a Pirate' Day on Karragarra Island, where the sculpture was positioned for the festival.
Greg enjoyed fantastic Island hospitality for the duration of the festival. He is looking forward to returning next year to enjoy the company of the delightful community of the Karragarra Yacht Club, who worked hard to put the event together..
