  • Biography

    Gregory Gibboney, (b. 1957, Santa Monica, CA) is a self-taught artist who has lived and worked in the mountains of the Northwest since 1983.

    After painting and drawing for most of his life, he began showing my work publicly in 1999 and now has a respectable list of private and corporate collectors throughout the United States.

    Gregory's paintings were exhibited by the SFMOMA Artists Gallery for over ten years. He has been featured at galleries in Northern California, Northern Nevada, Washington State and Idaho, including a group exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art. He was also one of the first mixed-media artists to be accepted to the Sausalito Art Festival.



    Artist Statement

    Even before coming to the mountains, where the outdoor environment and it’s seasonal changes are so dramatic, I was drawn to the landscape as a subject for my drawings and paintings. Although the work shown here is from a few different series, involving different techniques and mediums, they are all connected by my intuitive style of working with materials and color.

    Some of the landscape work, such as the Seasons Series, is influenced by my professional experience in design and architecture. Combining the constraints of a grid with the completely unrestrained wilderness creates a contrast of forms and composition that I find endlessly challenging and visually pleasing.

    In another series, titled Displacement, prints and drawings were combined to create mixed media work featuring dead or dying trees “displaced” into a living landscape. Another juxtaposition, but this time in medium as well as subject matter.

    I have always made a point of truthfully exposing the process in my paintings. What may be perceived as unfinished is actually telling a story and/or creating a dialogue between the viewer and myself about how the piece was made.
