Greg DeGrace: Driftless
October 2, 2020 - January 10, 2021
With varying degrees of abstraction, Minneapolis painter Greg DeGrace’s paintings reference the Driftless region of Minnesota and Wisconsin, an area that escaped the flattening effects of glaciers during the last ice age. Working in encaustic wax and pigment to create textural paintings, DeGrace references maps, aerial photographs, linear and geometric patterns found in roadways and plots of land with the natural, free-flowing forms of area waterways. His paintings, filled with colors and patterns, create memories of where one has been or stories of where one may have always dreamt of going.
