Gregory Wright: Forces

The Gallery at R&F is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Visiting Artist, Gregory Wright entitled, Forces. This exhibition will be on view from August 3rd through September 21st, 2013. In Gregory Wright’s paintings, organic shapes represent bodies of information that move about, morph, combine, and reemerge into something other than their original state. The dialogue among the shapes produces various results, which in turn are set on their own course, splashing out in all directions. As Hieronymus Bosch used allegorical scenes and elaborate fantasy imagery in his paintings as a commentary on the social and religious climate of the 15th and 16th centuries, Wright reacts to today’s social networking with Baroque-like compositions of intricacy, interconnectivity and complication.

Gregory's work is exhibited nationally as well as in the Boston area. Gregory's recent solo exhibition Microcosm/Macrocosm at The Carney Gallery of Regis College in Weston, Mass. was part of a visiting artist program. He is a member of the Galatea Gallery in Boston's South End, where he has been featured in two solo shows. Gregory is curator of Pollination-Beyond The Garden, a thematic group exhibition of artists working in encaustic along with guest lecturers. Gregory teaches workshops regularly in his studio in Lowell, Massachusetts that focus on the use of encaustic, raw pigments, and innovative ways to create surface. His exhibition at R&F is concurrent with a Visiting Artist workshop.

The Gallery at R&F in Kingston promotes the various contemporary uses of oil paint and encaustic.  The Gallery space is housed within the factory of R&F Handmade Paints, which is one of the few manufacturers of encaustic paint in the world.  Located at 84 Ten Broeck Ave, in midtown Kingston, NY gallery hours are Monday - Saturday, 10am - 5pm.  For further information, call (845) 331-3112.
