Artist Statement
Within the tradition of painting from life, the artist becomes a journalist leaving a trail of imagery. Photographs flatten a subject into a frame; but paint offers a sensitivity to value & color not often achieved otherwise. Greg Carr strives to illustrate a dialogue between brush strokes of realism and shapes of abstract thought within commonplace subjects. He lives, works, and paints plein air in Detroit, MI.
