Greg’s work reveals a love of function and mystery combined in the graphic elements of architecture and landscape. He is inspired by repetitions of form in space. An unflinching modernism and cool detachment inflects all his images, in the bright whites of super-watt bulbs and in light-filled landscapes. Greg’s often heroic portraits show sitters in context and in moments of reflection. He thrives on problem solving and developing creative ideas. His unassuming approach is based around simplicity, shape and structure.
In what ways has nature informed or inspired your work?
Thinking back on my life and my influences, what I tend to recall most lucidly are moments that took place in nature. Nights under stars, walking till your feet bled, riding waves (badly), freezing and wind battered but content on top a mountain, peddling hills or simply fishing by an idyllic lake. Nature is always moving, always working always changing. There are no straight lines or right angles in nature. Everything is a wave, a curve, a sinuous path. The seasons, the climate, light filled landscapes or dark misty forests, the variety is remarkable. Nature has a way of removing distractions, of commanding our deepest attention and respect. Moving forward I am very much drawn to how we as a society are looking at nature and its ability to regenerate, evolve and sustain life, and how technology can be used to harness the power of nature in ways that will benefit both humans and the planet.
