Greg Skrtic

I teach art to elementary school students in Fairfax County and create art whenever I can. For me, painting is an obsession. When I begin a painting, my obsession is red–angry, creative, passionate. Red is the time I am more than likely to experiment with new techniques and color combinations, working with broad strokes. As I settle into the painting, my obsession turns to green–calm, deliberate, sedulous. Green is when I am more analytical about the work, keeping an eye to compositional concerns and aesthetics. I take inspiration from many sources, both natural and man-made. I use patterns from patchwork quilting, carpet or wallpaper designs just as readily as from a seashell, leaf, or seed pod. Incorporating these patterns into the overall composition in a way that they can co-exist in harmony is a recurring theme in my work.
