Greg

Greg Haynes is a still life oil painter based outside of Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated from the Hartford Art School in 2003 with a BFA in Fine Art. His highly rendered works can be seen in galleries and collections around the world. Greg explains his current interests: “For the past few years Ive been working with a number of themes that involve the reflections and visual distortion that various objects create. Glass and metal are two of the predominant materials of choice. I like the idea that you can achieve natural effects that play tricks on the eye. A successful painting to me is one the really engages the viewer and makes them stop to figure out everything that is happening within the plane of the canvas. This is an ongoing exploration for me and one I hope to continue for years to come. That is one of the great things about art, you can spend years on one idea and still have many different directions to take it in.”

 

From a young age Greg gravitated to pencil drawing and the detail that it offered. Throughout his childhood and teenage years he refined his ability by mimicking artists like M.C.Escher and practicing observational drawing for hours on end. In his teens he was introduced to oil painting and quickly fell in love with it. Over the years, he explored a number of painting styles but ultimately found that hyper-realism was what he enjoyed the most.  

 

Greg lives and paints in Wakefield, MA with his wife Lauren, son Keagan, and daughter Evelyn.
