"It Takes Place" (2010) and "There is No Shift" (2010) are a pair of vibrant acrylic paintings on canvas by emerging artist Greg Minah (US, B. 1978.) that conflate his time as a street artist with his interest in Abstract Expressionism. Celebratory in color and composition, Mina's two works here are lyrical with colors that possess feeling of abstracted, lush landscapes and belong to his larger, iconic Series of large-scale 'action' paintings that all intersect his interest and experience in calligraphy, graffiti, abstract expressionism and action painting.

Minah's complex creative process involves pouring acrylic paint directly on the canvas and then spinning, tilting and turning the canvas to create organic abstract marks and negative space. For Minah, the paint is the subject that he 'humanizes' with specific titles for each paintings. The layers of paint create an intense internal dialogue, as each informs the artist on how the next might be applied. Minah builds many layers of color and marks one upon the other, never altering the results of the paint and is very thoughtful about the order and narrative of colors applied. The genius of Minah's work is that it appears completely hand-painted and controlled when it is anything but.

Greg Minah has been widely exhibited in the U.S., U.K. and Europe and is already in select prestigious Private and Corporate Collections, world-wide. He is a favorite at international Art Fairs, and sells out in both solo and group Gallery exhibitions. The artist received his Fine Art degree from The University of Maryland and currently lives and works in Maryland, US.
