Gregory is constantly exploring new ways to create and display artwork. This desire for uniqueness led him to create Photograins, a process and look not found anywhere else. Photograins are photographs and complex composite imagery applied directly onto wood. The results are striking: High contrast prints against a subtle wood grain, with beveled edges that seem to float off the wall.
Completing a 2,179mi thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2010, Gregory looked for a creative way to display the photos he took along his journey. He wondered if his images of woodlands could be applied directly to wood. An idea was born. Through years of trial and error, he finally achieved success by modifying wide-format printers so images print directly onto the substrate. The prints are then UV sealed for protection. His works have won numerous awards and is currently an exhibiting artist at Studio B Gallery in Boyertown, and Art Plus Gallery in West Reading.
