Anthony Greco: Looking Forward / Looking Back

Paintings from the 1970s 

Anthony Greco has been part of the Atlanta art world for fifty years. In recognition of the artist’s eightieth birthday this year, Thomas Deans Fine Art is presenting an important exhibition of his paintings from the 1970s. The 16 large-scale paintings in the exhibition trace the artist’s exploration of minimalism, a form of abstraction that reached its zenith in the 1970s.  Minimalism focuses on simple forms, and many of Greco's paintings comprise only parallel, intersecting, broken, or overlapping stripes. In them the artist reduces his art to essentials, separating the act of painting from depiction or emotion.

Greco’s interest in minimalism spanned only a decade. The paintings were included in exhibitions at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art in the 1970s but haven’t been shown publicly since. Today, they carry a patina of history yet retain a freshness and invention that is both the subject and the object of the work. This is exhibition is a “must see” for collectors.
