Iris Gregg

After experimenting with abstraction and figural paintings, L. Iris Gregg began to chronicle the banal moments that happen around the important events. Recreating images of these figures that truly exist only as memories through an introspective realm and taking remembrances of people not currently in contact with, these paintings become a “last look” of sorts. The development of the figures are pushed to an ambiguous altered state through the examination of the actions of individuals. Beginning with an under-painting riddled with symbols, each additional layer hides elements of the previous, resulting in fragments of these symbols or memories.
