Thingy Thursday: Artist and Collector, Greg Irvine

Eve Wilson Photography 

I can’t think of a better Thingy Thursday post to begin 2015 than the amazingly creative and collected space of artist Greg Irvine. I was wowed by this collaboration between filmmaker Paris Thomson of SIRAP, and Editor Lucy Feagins of The Design Files. Together they made a short video documenting Greg’s remarkable home, his collections and his paintings. 

Greg's collection of tortoise shell objects is stunning!

He has a large collection of vintage fabrics which he uses in his painting.
TITLE: View to the Garden with Blue • MEDIUM: oil on canvas • DIMENSIONS: 4ft x 5ft

Greg believes in surrounding himself with a lot of beautiful things. . . a practice I'm more than a little familiar with, but I think you call mine hoarding!

His sketch books are jaw-droppingly stunning!  He has hundreds of them full of sketches/paintings like the ones above.

TITLE: Clarice Cliff & Flowering Gum • Limited Edition Print 1/100 • DIMENSIONS: 91cms x 84cms
