GREG MINAH: PAINTING | METHOD

Greg Minah: Painting | Method from Greg Minah on Vimeo.

Here’s a fantastic video of be nice art friends very own Greg Minah. A beautiful peak into the studio and into the methodic and rythmic process of his paintings. Had the amazing privilege to have collaborated with Greg on a large scale painting when we were together as undergrads at University of Maryland College Park… it might be time for a reunion : )

A short video highlighting the unique painting method of Baltimore-based artist, Greg Minah.

Greg Minah creates his abstract paintings by pouring thinned out acrylic paint onto the canvas and then tilting and turning the stretcher to precisely control the flow of the medium. Often, a layer is partially removed with pressurized water before it has a chance to completely cure, leaving only the outline of the poured paint and revealing the multi-layered construction of the work. This method of working might best be described as a collaboration between artist and material. The result is a lyrical moment suspended in time but the significance remains fluid as it relies entirely on the encounter with the viewer.

Rachel Meuler, born in Louisville, is a multidisciplinary artist working with drawing and painting, sculpture and installation, and costume-oriented performance art. She received her BFA in Sculpture from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1999, her MFA in Sculpture from SUNY Purchase in 2001, and has been living and working in New York City since.

Meuler has been an artist in residence at the Millay Colony for the Arts, Skidmore College, and the Abrons Art Center of the Henry Street Settlement. Her work is included in several slide registries, including the Drawing Center’s Viewing Program, was recently exhibited in a solo show at Rabbithole Gallery, and has been featured in Glasschord and Cultrehall Magazines.

Her work is informed by the fears and fantasies of contemporary culture. The specimen-like portraits and narratives of hybrid creatures speak to the painful beauty of individual struggle and evolutionary anomalies.
