That’s the thing about combining abstraction and imagery, they both take one another into each other’s realm. You start to look at the Earth as more abstract and the drips more as material instead of just paint. – Gregory Edwards

Joining gestural marks with recognizable symbols and imagery, New York artist Gregory Edwards designs an all-over composition that removes context and meaning to present each element as equally fluid. In this recent body of work, 16 squares each have their own background color and marks as if removed from other artworks. Disjointed, playful, yet carefully painted, the raw improvisational energy of the gestural painting style is interrupted by this collaged effect and flatness of the brushwork. Edwards lives and works in Queens, New York. His work is included in the public collections of the Aïshti Foundation, Beirut; K11 Art Foundation, Hong Kong; and the Rubell Family Collection, Miami.
