Gregory Kitterle

 

Gregory Kitterle (United States) makes paintings and drawings. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, Kitterle seeks to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations. His works are a drawn reflection upon the art of painting itself: thoroughly self-referential, yet no less aesthetically pleasing, and therefore deeply inscribed in the history of modernism. Through a radically singular approach that is nevertheless inscribed in the contemporary debate, Kitterle absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. Gregory Kitterle currently lives and works in Randolph,Massachusetts.

 

 

 

Irregularities of the surfaces, stains, blotches and scratches, created while working become specters that rise up to tell their tale; each as individual as the eyes that behold them. My conversing with these specters of the various materials is like wandering in a labyrinth. Some are clear, offering easy images to share. Others sunken only whispering their possibilities. With its depth sometimes as thin as a sheet of paper, yet one can wander in it for miles and many hours. The images in my work are from tales told to me during my spectral wanderings in this labyrinth of surface.
