Still(ness)
Still(ness) explores the search for tranquility within an unruly psyche. Intuitive marks build detailed and busy compositions that are calmed by layers of quieted color. Duane Cregger received a Bachelor of Arts in Art from Roanoke College in 1992. He lived in Washington, DC, with a career in art direction and design until 2003, when he began to paint. His paintings are found in private and corporate collections, and his work has been featured in several publications.
