Gregory’s current direction in art is a series of paintings based on the behavior of prime numbers. He is exposing their elusive ability to create shapes and patterns when they are distributed in set ranges on predetermined arrays. There are many unanswered questions about prime numbers and why they behave as they do. In these paintings he is acting as an interpreter of his own vision, but following the set rules of prime numbers in mathematics; to perhaps discover some order in the sequence of prime numbers.

Gregory is also exploring the idea of brush-less painting using a paint drip method. This involves applying paint to the surface of the canvas and allowing it to form natural concave circles. Gravitational force causes the paint to form these circles in a very uniform manner. This also adds a subtle 3 dimensional aspect to the traditional 2 dimensional painting, giving the viewer the ability to engage more in the painting’s viewing space.

Gregory is a graduate of the State University of New York and Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. He is now attending Brooklyn College in Brooklyn, New York for his MFA in Painting.
