Greg Siler
Forest- Light Cool Tone Abstract Mixed Media Painting on Paper

2021

$950Asking Price

About

Upon first glance, the title Forest doesn't seem quite appropriate, but in true Siler fashion, the entitlement comes to fruition after examining the details of this piece. From the textures that resemble the ridges of tree bark, to the vertical repetition, Greg Siler has created a clear yet indecipherable landscape: similar to the clear yet confusing experience of being surrounded by trees in a forest. Subtle grays and whites are interrupted by spirts of deep violet, organic mossy yellow and even the darkest of gray and black. This color palette leads us away from our traditional imagery of forestry and transports us to the cold, austere, yet simply beautiful conceptual forest that Siler challenges us to see. Greg Siler has been painting for three decades, and his work is guided by memory and process. His paintings reflect a desire to engage paint, image and word as points of convergence, and Siler specifically resists defining his work with words. As he creates, if he sees an image he can define, Siler keeps working the paint until he can no longer find words adequate to describe the image. For Siler, the vitality in painting resides in the fact that the artwork does not directly reveal its meaning. The painting does not speak. Rather, the object of vision and thought are suspended in the materiality of the medium. Siler explains: “A painting’s physical presence in real space is neither identical to the through it stirs, nor is it separate. It registers what is seen int eh moment that sign is conflated with how we understand and express. In the end, the relationship between self and other, subject and object, sign and referent, production and reception are not direct links and straight lines, but rather myriad points of intersection.” For Siler, all painting is about both what we see and what we feel. Siler received his Master of Fine Art in Painting from Michigan State University and his Bachelor of Art in Painting from the Allen R. Hite Art Institute, University of Louisville in Kentucky. Siler also trained in France and Italy and has exhibited in solo and group shows across the country. In 2015, Siler won the distinction of Best in Show Grand Prize at the Carolina’s Got Art Exhibition. Forest- Light Cool Tone Abstract Mixed Media Painting on Paper
