Catalog for Gregg Chadwick's Exhibition "Theater of Memory" at the Monterey Peninsula College Art Gallery. October 4-November 4, 2011
Includes extensive notes on the paintings by the artist.
Currently I paint in an old airplane hangar in Santa Monica, California. The recurring sound of airplane take-offs and landings from the active airport runaway outside my studio reminds me of my own history of travel. After I finished my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art at UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) and my Master’s Degree in Fine Art at NYU (New York University), my wanderings took me from the U.S. to Asia to Australia to Europe and back, again and again. These wanderings have helped provide a series of spaces that appear within my paintings. My thoughts on art and politics can be found on my blog, Speed of Life: http://greggchadwick.blogspot.com/ My flickr page which is often updated with new finished paintings and work in progress is at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/greggchadwick/
