OFF THE GRID
MAY 11 – JUNE 1 2019
Neal Greig draws inspiration from quiet corners of the woodlands and lakes of Tyrone, Fermanagh, Armagh and Monaghan as well as from the roar of the Wild Atlantic Way, throughout Donegal, Coney Island, Mayo and beyond.
He has developed his painterly language on location, responding to the environment and the passing of time. These ideas and themes are translated into larger studio works. Greig is able to capture the unique, organic quality of each moment, and with each textured brushstroke, he adds another temporal level to the piece.
Greig’s precipice cliffscapes, and riverbank viewpoint capture the magnificent pull of the ocean and constant passage of streams. The viewer is at once energized and transfixed. Greig’s colours, true and vivid, impress upon the viewer his own theatrical reality, offering a visceral impression of what the artist experiences personally upon the first sight of his object of interest.
His paintings are exquisite.
