About Greg Ragland :

With an addiction to light and movement, nature feeds my passion of watching clouds move, birds cross overhead, the rushing of water below and the fish within. The skies overhead and the rivers and streams below fueled a love of color and movement. The colors evoke moods and feelings causing imaginations to flow. This series of paintings is a contemporary take on typically traditional subject matter. The rendered birds and fish exist juxtaposed in the minimal composition of the highly developed surfaces of the "Color Fields". These paintings capture a moment of time; a bird suspended in flight, a still fish. These paintings are interpretations of spontaneous experiences in nature. My intent as the artist is for the viewer to get lost in the calming beauty of these spontaneous experiences in nature within the seductive "Color Fields".

Greg was born in Augusta Georgia and grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He studied architecture at Arizona State University, received his BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California and his MFA from the University of Utah. Prior to settling in Park City, Utah in 1990, Greg worked as an artist in Los Angeles and New York City.
