The Crossing

"Gregg Chadwick paints scenes from the life of Asia that reminds us of the monastic life of pilgrimage which has been all but lost in the West."
-Ratnagarbha and Thomas Jones
from "Urthona: Journal of Buddhism and the Arts" Issue 20

Thanks to Anna Conti for her recent comments on my work and site. Enjoyed her tour of the downtown San Francisco galleries.


And Tyler Green is pondering the state of art in LA while reading about the Tate in London. Provacative ideas.


Also a must read is Megan McMillan's account of skipping out of high school to sit in the cool chill of Church's iceburgs.

I visited your gallery in Santa Monica this weekend and was moved by your work. Your composition and colors are absolutely enlightening.
Best Wishes,
