GREGORY MAROUN

From Here to There
March 8 - March 29, 2016
Reception: Thursday March 10, 2016 6-8 PM

Gregory Maroun creates characters and forms with nets of carefully placed ink and fine linear patterns. At times printed or drawn directly in an intricate system of pen, each image builds dimension out of this graphic quality. Maroun's works often depict human figures, be they portraits or mid-action, and he uses overlain lines to contour and even contradict the forms of faces, hair, and limbs. Each pattern becomes akin to thread or lace, sometimes integrated into the figures and at other times appearing as if worn on the bodies. The lines twist and warp through each image, melding the subject and environment in compositions that appear full of movement even in the most static, direct portraits. Restricting his work primarily to black, white, and grey with the occasional intervention of warm, saturated color, Maroun allows his figures to fade and lines trail off into space, as every part of the image becomes a play of light and dark.

With his works Maroun observes and explores the emotional and physical nature of humanity. He creates images that balance a transparent draftsmanship with recognizable humanity.
