Please join host committee Tracy Hickman, Kim Kutnick, Jill Maremont, Colin Falco and Matthew Rachman Gallery to celebrate artist Greg Dickerson’s opening of “Intuition”, an exhibit of 28 new works on Friday, July 15th. Meet the artist and hear first hand about the process, inspiration and evolution of “Intuition”. Portion of proceeds will be donated to Chicago House supporting programming for those disenfranchised by HIV.
Greg Dickerson’s new body of work includes 28 pieces ranging in size and color intensity. The new work exudes a certain child-like energy where institutional colors are paired with vibrant hues, graphic mark making and fabrics creating a juxtaposition between materials, color and form. The work is driven by intuitiveness. Greg’s work is created with mixed medium, using fabrics he’s inherited from his grandmother. For Greg, using fabric is about breaking borders where the fabric acts like a bucket of paint that is poured. While Greg creates his larger-scaled work he isolates color and texture in smaller studies. He creates a body of over 200 studies for any given show. The studies tell a story. One is a word, two a sentence, three a paragraph and so on until the story unfolds.

Two decades of work has led Greg to focus on using tactile materials combined with paint on both canvas and wood panels. His vision is realized by working with the idea that immediacy allows for the conceptual process between elements and materials to interact.
