Greg Schaefer - Artist Statement
Greg Schaefer, a self-taught artist who lives and works in San Diego, was born In Rochester, New York. He spent his childhood in Silver Spring, Maryland, reading encyclopedias, collecting rocks and studying relief maps. He was particularly excited by electron microscope images his father, a photographer at the National Institutes of Health, would bring home.
These influences on his early childhood have become an important source of inspiration for his artwork today.
Greg’s sculptural work has been exhibited at Ashton Gallery, Poway Performing Arts Center, Escondido Arts Partnership Municipal Gallery, Visual Gallery, San Diego Mesa College Art Gallery, the Porto Vista Hotel, Sepheri Gallery, and many pop-up and short-term exhibitions in the San Diego area.
