Mixed-media collage painting on gallery wrapped canvas.
(available from www.greggirbyfineart.com)
I incorporate college I collect from recycled magazines, newspapers, and old books. I then dissolve the printed color pigment with a solvent and turn the printed material into what appears to be dreamy watercolor studies. In turn, I rip those images apart and start assembling a “skeleton” of sorts on the canvas. I think in terms of color and texture. I break down and then build back up. I erase, yet reveal. I use numerous layers of paint, washes, glazes, medium, spliced text, handmade paper, tissue, and gesture marks to make the piece appear to be a unified surface; My intention is to create layers of information through my technique; leading your mind’s eye on an aesthetic journey. It is a form of communication, and contradiction.

Dawn Flower Gems of colour and texture in the whiteness of space, suggestive of small animals' journeys, leaving their tracks in the dust. Or of the islands of information we find through reading surrounded by deep nothingness of meditiation.
