FEATURED ARTIST AUGUST 2012


Curator Piotr ask Greg what is your art about? Tell me how you began your quest to be an artist?
Greg responds:

BIO: Greg Giesking  It was about a girl!

Poetry is like a good woman
i crave to lust-
carelessly loving large.
As a young boy
trying to find a muse
with a deep ambition to change
the world with words.


Words change with age
as i be get'n older-  
imagination leaks.  As i stubble
upon painting with a vengeance.
Within love, support
of family and friends-
that choose to understand
with no regret,  i continue my approach
to find the light in the darkness (love). 
Only than we have nothing to fear.


Cause i will always be a boy
kick'n in the gutter
an empty pop can-
trying to find the, bleached out
pastels of a road home.
Only to kick in a dent.
Not trying to change society
but only to direct  it
towards humanity. 
Love is chaos
love hurts.
Yet love is a constant- 
like breathing.  
It's  everything we need.
So love large and carelessly.
Life is unexplainable, yet we are here. 
As all of us can take a bad turn.

Do a 180-
and realize again-
we be alive.
-g.Lyle
