About The Artwork

My oil on panel painting, "Cameron Meets Seurat" is an homage to John Hughes' film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" which is in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. In Hughes's film, the three main characters skip out of school in Chicago's wealthy suburbs to spend a life changing day in the Windy City. At the Art Institute of Chicago, Ferris and his friends Cameron and Sloane find beauty and mystery in the art within. Throughout the visit, Cameron's red Gordie Howe jersey adds a contemporary, sports culture reference to the high culture of the museum. In my painting, Cameron stares into Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" and finds himself questioning the meaning of life itself as he peers deep into Seurat's pointillist brush marks. Note: Gordie Howe played with the Detroit Red Wings and scored 801 goals during his time in the NHL. “Cameron Meets Seurat” was exhibited at The Other Art Fair in Chicago in September 2018, the Fabrik Contemporary Art Expo in Los Angeles in October 2018, and at The Other Art Fair Los Angeles at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica in October 2018.

GREGG CHADWICK creates his artwork in an old airplane hangar in Santa Monica, California. The recurring sound of airplane take-offs and landings from the active airport runway outside his studio reminds him of his own history of travel. Chadwick has exhibited his artworks in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. He earned a Bachelor's Degree at UCLA and a Master’s Degree at NYU, both in Fine Art. Chadwick has had notable solo exhibitions at the Manifesta Maastricht Gallery (Maastricht, The Netherlands), Space AD 2000 (Tokyo, Japan), the Lisa Coscino Gallery (Pacific Grove, CA), the Julie Nester Gallery (Park City, Utah), the Sandra Lee Gallery (San Francisco), and Audis Husar Fine Arts (Los Angeles) among others. Chadwick has participated in over one hundred group exhibitions including the L Ross Gallery (Memphis, Tenn), the Andrea Schwartz Gallery (San Francisco), the LOOK Gallery (Los Angeles), the Arena 1 Gallery (Santa Monica), the di Rosa Preserve Gallery (Napa) and the Arts Club of Washington (Washington DC).

 Chadwick is frequently invited to lecture on the arts. He has spoken at UCLA, Monterey Peninsula College, the Esalen Institute, TRAC 2015, the World Views forum in Amsterdam - The Netherlands, and at Categorically Not - a monthly forum that considers the arts and science. Twice a year he delivers a lecture on art and social justice at UCLA in an interdisciplinary form with the UCLA School of Nursing. Chadwick was a working artist in residence at the Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles leading students at Culver City High School in an exploration of Dael Orlandersmith’s “Until the Flood.” Chadwick is the proud father of his transgender daughter Cassiel Chadwick.. 
 Chadwick’s blog, Speed of Life, explores the intersections between the arts and society and was honored by Carnegie Hall as one of the Top 16 Art Blogs in the country:  Speed of Life.
