art - objects - The Art of Nothing
The Art of Nothing collection features seemingly worthless objects (ie "trash") which Greg turned into pieces of art ("treasure"). This process is commonly known as 'Outsider Art'. Others refer to it as 'Brikolage' (a French word meaning 'using everything at hand'). The objects Greg has used to create the pieces include things like: stitches of a baseball, tassels from a graduation cap, splinters of a rocking chair, milkshake straws, a bow tie & an aluminum flip-top. In most cases, the objects are accompanied within the frame by a quote from Greg in which he reflects on what he believes to be the true meaning of the object and the story behind it. These pieces represent the philosophy that everything & everyone has value. To see photos from art-related events, click here. For more on his art using images, click here.
