GREG HABERNY (b. 1976, American)
Greg Haberny’s work engages the intersection of personal and collective memory, weaving episodic narratives into methodical chaos. Gritty, spontaneous, obsessive and free-floating, Haberny’s pictures unapologetically reject common methods of working in favor of finger painting, melting, even tracking in footprints and incorporating objects strewn about the studio. He has recently taken to burning and liquefying his old works into a ​new form as he orchestrates both a physical and metaphorical reincarnation now central to his practice. Clusters of symbols and crude figuration are rendered in flat, one-plane perspectives, simultaneously self-referential and universal. In an increasingly technological and mass-produced world, Haberny’s techniques preserve the physical art of process while calling to the CoBrA Movement’s spontaneity and the primitive figuration of the New York School.

Haberny has exhibited internationally throughout the United States, Europe and Japan, including solo institutional projects at Middlebury College Museum of Art; the McColl Center for Visual Art; the HVCCA Peekskill Project V; the Katonah Museum of Art Triennial, and the Bedford Historical Society.
