Los Angeles-based artist, Greg Colson, presents "Trending and Non-trending", an exhibition of new paintings and sculpture. Works depicting systems of comfort, convenience, and serenity are punctured by representations of mortality and pressing social issues.
Hot tub design and lumbar pillows collide with “single use plastic” and “teen vaping” in a kind of absurdist poetry. By playing up the physical aspects of his works, Colson allows the background support and surfaces to infringe upon the systems he depicts - creating a balance of importance between material and concept.
Greg Colson lives and works in Los Angeles. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, including solo exhibitions at Sperone Westwater, New York; Patrick Painter Inc., Los Angeles; Kayne Griffin Corcoran, Los Angeles; Konrad Fischer, Dusseldorf; Galleria Cardi, Milan; Kunsthalle Lopem, Bruges; Gian Enzo Sperone, Rome; Baldwin Gallery, Aspen; and the Lannan Museum, Lake Worth, FL. His works are held in public and private collections internationally including: the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Panza Collection, Varese, Italy; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Sammlung Rosenkranz, Berlin; and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
