Greg Gummersall

Gummersall's paintings have an energetically gestural, spontaneous quality.  His brushstrokes suggest symbols or signs whose meanings can be sensed but never fully grasped.  the are reminiscent of adrenaline-filled quickly drawn graffiti.  But unlike the temporary existence of most graffiti, Greg's brushstrokes and use of collage build upon each other to create a sense of memory in the canvases; nothing is erased, and through the layers of paint, the history of his marks remain visible.
