GREGG EMERY

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

The works and the world of Gregg Emery are inherently imperfect: purposefully paradoxical marriages between simplicity and complexity, clarity and confusion. Emery uses each of his works to complicate his two recurring forms: the circle and the rectangle. He uses sheer physicality to drag his paint into these two shapes, allowing the colors and individual marks of each bristle to interact with one another on his muslin base in ways that are both entirely intentional, yet also left slightly to chance. Each of Emery's pieces contains a unique, yet often limited, color palette, often inspired by unexpected sources. Derived from his everyday life, Emery's recent color choices are inspired by films: James Bond, Twilight, and Indiana Jones, to name a few. “Movies are modern mythology, religion, or meditation,” says the artist. “Movie makers are the gods, the creators of worlds, akin to the masters of the Renaissance.” 

Through his powerful color selections and movements, Emery awakens something primal within his viewers. He triggers associations both intended and unexpected, allowing the viewer to continuously enjoy the works with their own, ever-evolving interpretations.
