About the Book
A retrospective review of Los Angeles painter Gregg Chadwick's paintings, which pull the world's moments into view and lead the viewer into a numinous space. Chadwick is part of a Globalism movement in the arts that has left behind the self-reflective irony of Post-Modernism and turned towards the world as its subject.
