  • Greg Navratil

    Greg Navratil purchased a historical schoolhouse near Seaside over a decade ago. There he creates quasi-realistic paintings. In these all-over-paintings, abstraction is not removed from nature. These works concentrate on the abstract and chaotic qualities of nature. The surfaces are covered from edge to edge and from corner to corner. Your eyes are invited to wander everywhere, to follow the lines shapes, and values. Each area of the composition is given equal attention and significance. Colors are applied with small brushes or paint dispensers in thick layers which appear to be haphazard up close. There is a balance between the painting traditions of abstraction and realism.
