Gregory Dirr shapes a multifaceted universe in which characters, landscapes, legends, and the imaginary are depicted through painting, sculpture, and installation. Gregory’s broad thematic associations invite existential reflection in which chaos and tranquility often intermingle. In his work he explores the correlation between ecologies and their inhabitants, the absurdity of searching for answers to the unknowable, and emphasis on character archetype reversal.
Born in Miami, Florida, Gregory is a visual artist. His works have been shown in solo exhibitions in South Florida and abroad. His most involved body of work, The Big Book, has been exhibited since 2008 including the most recent show in 2022. He was awarded the Silver Key for Portfolio by The National Scholastic Art and Writing Alliance in 2004 and received his BFA at Ringling College of Art and Design in 2008. While there, he produced many significant pieces winning the Best of Core and Best of Fine Arts awards. He is a current resident artist at Bailey Contemporary Arts Center in Pompano Beach, Florida.
