Artist Gregory El Harvey

"Gregory El Harvey does not defy convention. He simply ignores it. His art is the result of years of solitary studio time, endless study of ideas that fascinate him, and a lifetime spent wandering this earth in a bit of a daze. A solitary man, he is in a quest for truth in art, relentlessly pursuing the elusive, and doggedly stripping away the pretenses of life to capture a fragile perceptive moment on canvas. His dreams are grounded in sorrow, his flights of fancy are always aware of life's pain. But he does not live in the world as most people do, but rather half in and half out of it, perhaps somewhere close to the moons he sprinkles across his paintings."
