Greg Gummersall

Greg Gummersall’s paintings have an energetically gestural, spontaneous quality. His brushstrokes suggest symbols or signs whose meanings can be sensed but never fully grasped. They are reminiscent of adrenaline-filled quickly drawn graffiti. But unlike the temporary existence of most graffiti, Greg’s brushstrokes and use of collage build upon each other to create a sense of memory in the canvases; nothing is erased, and through the layers of paint, the history of his marks remain visible.

“My primary objective is to add beauty and expanded awareness to the viewers of my art. Contrary to much of the Art World’s “Shock Art”, I hope that my art communicates on a higher plane and provides a sort of refuge in a troubled world.”

Gummersall’s art is in numerous private, corporate and public collections including the Fordham University Museum at Lincoln Center, Federal Reserve Bank Chicago, Palm Springs Art Museum, Deutsche Bank, Toyota, Tucson Museum of Art, ANA Sheraton Hotel in Osaka, Pacific Bank, BMW, Four Seasons, and many others. Greg was honored to be included in the 183rd National Academy Invitational Exhibition Of Contemporary American Art in New York.
