Gregory Malphurs

BIOGRAPHY

Gregory grew up in his grandfather's painting studio in Miami. He's been making art since he was able to grip a pencil. You could say he's literally spent a lifetime in art.

After a decade in NYC, Gregory relocated his home and studio to Los Angeles. Gregory's work is collected worldwide and has been shown in galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe. Throughout a career spanning decades, he's continued to create work that challenges viewers to think and look deeper.

Artist Statement

The ability to look deeply is the root of creativity. To see past the ordinary and mundane and get to what might otherwise be invisible. My work is a deconstruction recipe of emotions, colors, stories, and inspirations reflecting life with its troubles and complications — each part and piece of a puzzle making it whole. From an inside-out view, the work reveals a universal common bond of personal struggle — that life is a series of fragments that we have to make sense of — introspection, fragmentation, complexity of being, dealing with confliction.

Intuitively I feel the need to always challenge myself to go further, not to accept things at face value and never settle — a need to go deeper and look at the places in ourselves we would rather avoid. My mission is to make work that allows us to embrace our insecurities without judgement. Making the statement: “Yeah, we’re all fucked up, but we’re doing the best we can.”
