Frank Gregory (b.1962 Brockton, MA) is a graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art. A mid-career artist, Gregory initially began his painting career with his focus on the landscape, before moving on to large scale public art commissions for state and federal agencies. Today, the artist has several permanent installations nationwide.
Working in oils, his paintings find their individual characters from highly intuitive color interactions, or relationships. He builds his painting surface up with brushy, confident strokes, which echo the skill of the artist himself, while at the same time, engaging the viewer with a variety of unexpected subject matter. Light tends to be a key element throughout his painting, as the artist explores it’s effect upon different surfaces and in different settings. Characteristic of Gregory’s work is a balance between levity and weight within his compositions. His work is a refreshing reprieve from ambiguity, to that which is straightforward and beautiful.
Gregory has received numerous awards, and was a recipient of the Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Grant. Today the artist maintains a studio in Greenfield, Massachusetts.
