Greg McLemore (Opening Day)
Gregory Mclemore “ALL Patched Up” Opens March 30th – May 1st Reception April 6th 5 to 7pm in the Rouse Company Gallery
Gregory Mclemore paintings range in subject from the once glorious but now dilapidated buildings of Baltimore City to the historic city of Nagasaki, Japan. The Baltimore Ruins paintings are highly detailed paintings of the city's crumbling and in some cases, razed, structures. Aspiring to reflect the deep, dark, gritty nature of the city, as is reflected in its architecture. Inferences to the human psyche are enmeshed in each gash, hole, and sloppy patch. The Nagasaki City paintings are scenes of Nagasaki's multilevel, Tetris -like architecture. Rather than the gleaming futuristic cities one might expect in Japan, Nagasaki is a charming, historic place, filled with gravity, character, and a shifting horizon line that forces multiple and dramatic views.
