If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Currently I paint in an old airplane hangar in Santa Monica, California. The recurring sound of airplane take-offs and landings from the active airport runaway outside my studio reminds me of my own history of travel. After I finished my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art at UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) and my Master’s Degree in Fine Art at NYU (New York University, my wanderings continued to take me from the U.S. to Asia to Australia to Europe and back, again and again. These wanderings have helped provide a series of spaces that appear within my paintings.
Within the past year my paintings have entered collections in Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, and Amsterdam as well as Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston.
“In Gregg Chadwick’s paintings there is an elegiac tone, a kind of nostalgia for a manifestation of the purely spiritual that most of us can never hope to attain. The paintings are truly captivating in that they invite us irresistibly into their spaces and hold the attention there in their swirl of light and color, suggesting inexhaustible depths of experience for the eye to explore.”
