gregory euclide 02 428x400 Tear it Up. Artist Gregory Euclide is turning modern art upside down. And inside out. And a little to the left. The Minnesota based artist was influenced by growing up in Wisconsin surrounded by natural landscape which you can clearly see in his work (in a more abstract sense). He clearly has a signature style, though the concept is certainly something we’ve been seeing a lot of lately- this whole create something then turn into something totally different by destroying it thing. If every art needs an -ism, I would describe this movement as destructionism. Looking at the state of the country (and the world) one can’t help but deduce why.  I appreciate that about this kind of work. That, along with the visual challenge and subsequent manipulation it presents. One does have to be careful of repetition, though.

    Sprouts beautifully and destroys itself. I love it.
