In her most recent work, Gail Gregg transforms homely, everyday objects that typically go unseen. A chicken crate lid becomes a geometric painting. Through a variant of alchemy, paper pulp packing materials destined for the trash are transfigured into radiant, gilded objects. Orphaned photo albums become haunting images of loss. Vintage postcards coupled with material from supermarket fliers are imbued with surrealistic narratives. These repurposed objects and images speak to the possibility of transformation, humor – and the quantity of trash generated in our profligate 21st Century America. Finally, they remind us not to take even the most insignificant things for granted.
