Greg Gibbons – Artist Statement

My career as an animation background painter has enabled me to paint in many different styles, mediums and locations around the world. In the early days, all the background painting was done using tradition mediums, including watercolor, gouache and acrylics. Many of the artists I worked along side came with fine art portfolios, and had their own gallery shows on the side. There was a collaborative spirit as we refined our work for the film studios, but these techniques also had an interesting effect on the evolution of our own styles. By the turn of the millennium, digital painting had replaced the tradition methods.

As the commercial industry slowed in 2009, I was able to devote more of my time to painting the landscapes of central Ontario that I love. I have turned to acrylics and oil painting, as I retrain myself from years of commercial restraints to the more expressive approach I am endeavoring to achieve.

There is constant inspiration near my home in Peterborough and all around my cottage on Baptiste Lake. Every new painting is a progression, as my style and seeing slowly matures to portray the diversity around me.
