PAUL GRECO ARTIST STATEMENT 2009. "I have been creating art, mostly abstract, for as long as I can remember. From early childhood I was particulary drawn to the beautiful abstractions by Kandinsky, "Miro, Picasso, Klee and other modern masters. I enjoy using various mediums: acrylic on canvas and paper, collages, constructions, leaded glass and furniture design. Found objects and photography also play an important role in my work. Sculpture has been a major focus of my artwork as well. Recently I completed a marble and limestone sculpture installation entitled, "Meditation Circle" on permanent display at Sculpture Meadow Park in Yonkers, New York on the shore of the Hudson River. I often invite synchronicity to guide me in the creative process because it allows me to follow a path not yet explored. I have always been fascinated by outer space and in subjects ranging from the cosmic to the microscopic, mysteries of the ancient world and mysteries of today. The origins of life and the unknown have inspired me and opened my mind to new possibilities of expression and creativity. Much of my work reflects an evolving spiritual awareness.
I attended the School of Visual Arts in NYC, studied interior design at Parson's School of Design and faceted/ stained glass at Rolph's Stained Glass Studio. My artwork has been exhibited internationally. I have had numerous one-person and group shows in museums and galleries, including the Bronx Museum of the Arts, the Hudson River Museum, the Katonah Museum of Art, Washington East Galleries, Lever House in NYC. A quotation from Albert Einstein's "What I Believe" resonates with my personal philosophy: "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science."
