Latex and Acrylic on Canvas
Greta Vick grew up on a farm near Madison, Minnesota, and now resides in urban Minneapolis. Intimate details and curiosity fascinate her; they are her driving force. She loves the unorthodox, the contemporary, the abstract. Greta's life-long passion for creating something out of nothing is reflected in her artwork, which often features materials such plywood, rebar tie-wire, steel, wax, paint, corrosion, and even bark.
Greta received her Bachelors of Science majoring in Interior Design from The Art Institutes International. These days, in addition to producing art, she works with architects, interior designers, and landscape architects to create space in both natural and built worlds.
Her early work was heavily focused on intricate graphite and sculptural pieces (she truly despised the painting realm). Once out of college, she let go of definitions and formed a bond with painting and the world of art. Now, the need to create serves as the only inspiration. There’s no rhyme or reason other than what “feels right”. Nothing is ever planned; only working on a spur of the moment basis. If the viewer walks away with anything, she’d hope for it to be confusion – but only because confused people generally want more.
