Looking Forward / Looking Back

 

Download press release.

Anthony Greco has long been a fixture in the Atlanta art world. As a painter, he has always tended to simplify, to reduce the superfluous. This instinct for simplification was perhaps strongest during the 1970s, when Greco moved away from figuration, adopting a "minimalist" abstract aesthetic that sought to distill painting to its essence. These painting invited viewers to contemplate the marks on the canvas simply as marks. Color and line were the subjects and beauty fo application the only concession to painterliness. Such formal preoccupations were seen as difficult, and perhaps disturbing to some.viewers. Over time, Greco himself went in other artistic directions. Forty Years later, these paintings bear the patina of age, yet they appear fresh and new again, still reflecting a purity that is both the subject and the object of the work.
