The Art of Greg Ferris

Pin It

The imagery in Greg Ferris’ layered collages is a curious combination of the organic and the inorganic, the modern and the traditional.  His art explores the areas where unrelated objects intersect, and how, in doing so, they affect each other.

Snip from an interview:

In a work of art, I position objects in ways that will affect their neighboring bodies, like musical notes create intervals.  The images and their placements express my interpretation of topics such as science and tradition, which I’ve been taught are more complicated ways of saying that at the center of the universe there’s two tiny bits of something bumping against each other, and it goes on much the same from there..

Besides being a talented artist, Ferris is also a musician and an avid skateboarder.
