Gregory Grenon - Moth Girl the One Who Must Play
Moth Girl, the woman with the wings not of an angel or a butterfly but of a moth. The blue/green background enhances those wings as her fingers dance at the piano keys. She flutters in her yellow dress, not seated but hovering. Like a light bulb, the piano draws her to it. She cannot help herself. She must play that piano, much like Gregory Grenon must paint and paint in color. Grenon is a local Portland artist who came here from his hometown Detroit, Michigan via Chicago, Illinois. Laura Russo Gallery has shown his work and in the video below he talks about himself and his work.
