Real, Natural, and Unsustainable @ Joseph Gross Gallery - University of Arizona Tucson

Gregory Euclide
“Real, Natural and Unsustainable”

August 27- November 11, 2010
Closing Reception Date: November 4, 5 – 6:30 pm
Gregory Euclideʼs work explores the manner in which we experience nature and how
these encounters are tied to the cultural practice of fabricating landscapes as idealized
constructs. His recent compositions are a series of sculptural “captures” made by
pouring paint or liquid adherent over the natural environment. Euclide uses the
complexity and interconnectedness of the environment as the content and conceptual
framework for his art. In “Real, Natural and Unsustainable,” Euclide will explore the
Tucson landscape, building ethereal, bucolic topographies to provide an explorable
vignette of our local surroundings. His work is a manifestation of the tension between our
desires to engage, preserve and sustain the natural world and the demands our lifestyles
place upon the environment.
Gregory Euclideʼs work has been shown in exhibitions at the Minnesota Museum of
American Art, White Walls, San Francisco, and the Massachusetts Museum of
Contemporary Art. He recently completed his installation, “Because Thereʼs There, Here
is Just Fine” for the Biennial of the Americas held in Denver, Colorado.
