To women thinking about working in games: We need your voice.

Did you know that 47% of gamers are women and yet women only make up 22% of the game industry workforce? Runaway wants to help improve those numbers by increasing awareness of women in the industry and highlighting the incredible work they do.

Looking Forward to Seeing You at The Other Art Fair

by Gregg Chadwick

 "...the distinction made between past, present 
and future is nothing more than a persistent stubborn illusion"

            "the most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious...
             whoever does not know it and can no longer marvel, 
is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed."

-Albert Einstein

My studio is full of new paintings that will make their premier at Saatchi Art's The Other Art Fair. Time, movement, memory, and technology all weave their way into my artworks. 

Art critic Alex Bigman wrote this about my paintings - 
“Gregg Chadwick begins with a Greek conceptual dyad pertaining to that slippery core of existence: Time. The ancients defined chronos as sequential and chronological time, kairos – the time in between. Chadwick paints in oil in various sessions, superimposing images upon one another and in effect capturing the ghostly effect of kairos. The palette is muted; the atmosphere vaporous, beautiful and melancholy. With any luck, Chadwick hopes, the works will disturb viewers' sense of time's linearity, offering the conundrum of a simultaneous past, present and future instead.”
