Movement, territory, and memory shape the work of artist Gregory Thielker. He uses drawing and painting, as well as sound and installation, to unpack perceptions and narratives of specific places. Hyperrealistic representation serves as a tool for a slow, meticulous transcription of the physical sites, as well as documentation of the artist’s contact with each place. His images reveal a critical glance, give pause for contemplation, and allow memory to affect our impressions.
He has exhibited throughout the United States and abroad. Recent exhibition venues include Castor Gallery, New York, Bennington College, Vermont, The Brattleboro Art Museum, Vermont, Republic Gallery, Paris, and Flashpoint Gallery, Washington, DC. He is the recipient of many grants and residencies including the Fulbright-Nehru Senior Research Award, Sanskriti-Kendra Residency in Delhi, Hybrid Art Projects Residency in El Salvador, and the American Scandinavian Foundation Artist Grant. His work has been featured by The Guardian, Vermont Public Radio, The Independent, La Repubblica, and New American Painting.
Gregory Thielker currently lives in New York City.
