About Slef Portrait Greg Mason Burns
I'm an visual-based artist instead of a materials-based artist. My approach is to find the simplest answer in a world where opposites can coexist in the same place at the same time. I use strong contrasting primary and secondary colors (including white and black) to find fundamental answers to complex questions. My goal is to ask the question and seek the answer through process. My artistic influence is Ernest Hemingway, and my paintings are declarative using bold colors and stark contrasts. My materials are oil-on-canvas, watercolor-on-board or paper, and oil-pastel-on-glass. I am originally from Maine, but I currently live in Brasil. I am a graduate of both the University of Maine and the University of Edinburgh.
