Gregg Allan McGivern is a prolific, multidisciplinary artist that experiments with many different forms of substrates, materials and mediums to create art. He has various styles from traditional wat... ercolours; abstract/semi-abstract and impressionistic paintings to fine life renderings. He is an outsider, self-taught artist and considers himself a serial painter as he usually creates art in groups of ten. He has sold art to collectors locally, in Europe, Russia and the Middle East. He is now experimenting with wood burned panels and paint, as well as all forms of textile art and sculptures both hard and soft.
As a Zen Buddhist and a spiritual person, that has had past experiences with mental health issues, being balanced in mind, body and spirit is my goal. I have noticed lately that “this seeking balance” has been slowly creeping into my artwork and my latest series called BALANCE has brought this to fruition. These two pieces are the first in the series of ten. Each one is wood burned and painted on a wooden panel. The characters within the painting are couples maintaining these balance positions that have now become parallel to my actual life.
