Featured Artist Spotlight: Gregory Ito

Another App Store is the newest exhibit presented by the Sol Collective. Another App Store features the work of James Cordas, Gregory Ito, and Robby Moncrieff.

Gregory Ito

The co-owner of Ever Gold Gallery and the editor of San Francisco’s Art Quarterly, Gregory Ito was originally trained as a painter but his recent work has evolved into mixed media arrangements and installations showing throughout the city at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Eleanor Hardwood Gallery, and Truesilver Gallery.

Greg explains his work:

Through the multiple mediums of assemblage, painting, sculpture, and installation I establish a language that explores the relationships between image and object and what an art object entails in today’s social and cultural climate.  Using a combination of personal ephemera, consumer products, and industrious materials, works are produced in my practice that fabricate a vernacular that addresses the concepts in my work which reference domestic space, romantic companionship, spirituality, and personal history.  The motivating ideas that fuel my work is rooted in human euphoria and nostalgia for the moments in human history that define perceived value in today’s consumer driven landscape, with recurring dialogues toward natural manifestations such as twilight and the celestial identities of the Sun and Moon.  I continue my artistic endeavors bearing placement as gesture, texture as memory, objects as identities, image as catalogue, and text as backdrop
