From his Washington D.C. studio, Greg Angelone pairs vintage imagery and vivid painting to explore the social significance of flowers. “I’ve always been fascinated by our various uses for flowers in everyday life and how we display them. From births to deaths, and everything in between, a gift of flowers conveys a wide range of emotion and meaning,” says the artist. Each painting becomes a commemoration of a human emotion, expressed florally. In a departure from traditional canvas, Greg starts his paintings with a base of vintage French and chinoiserie fabric and builds the scene in layers of acrylic paint. The resulting images divulge a deeply personal moment. When he’s not painting, Greg designs and installs exhibitions at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
