The beauty of the photography and paintings of Greg Slick is like that of his words. They contain the essence of wit, unique insights into today’s society, and always a kind of humor. It’s a wonderful combination.

Greg Slick introduces his unusually simple yet prominent views on cloning and its social meanings while creating anonymous portraits and human figures without identities.

Elin Kard

Greg Slick was born in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1961. His work has been exhibited worldwide, from New York City to Tallinn, Estonia to Tokyo, Japan. The tension between documentation and representation is central to Slick’s painting, photography, and experimental sculpture. He lives and works in New York City and Beacon, New York.
