LOS ANGELES, CA.- Merry Karnowsky Gallery
present a solo exhibition by Gregory Euclide, “What Was Still In The
Pause of My
Advance.” Euclide’s multi media paintings and sculptures are meditations
nature and the way in which humans experience the natural world.
three-dimensional works begin with elaborate drawing-based paintings of
picturesque landscapes on paper, to which he adds found objects,

organic and inorganic. By-products of human consumption are recycled and
beautiful- Styrofoam becomes a layer of snow, bubble wrap becomes a
brook, discarded blue paint becomes the sky. The artist finds beauty in
superficial, and uses discarded materials to show the regenerative
properties of
nature. On view 10 April through 8 May.
