Golden Paintings

New Work by Greg Decker

May 2- May 30, 2009

Greg Decker, a representational painter who has taught with the Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, commemorates his first solo exhibition at Tinney Contemporary as he relocates to Nashville. Having grown up overseas in Africa, Greg's work combines a variety of cultural influences.  His recent works include small"visionary" landscapes, in addition to the figure paintings for which he is well-known in the Southeast.

The show also celebrates the release of a small documentary entitled "Greg Decker:  Life and Work" by students at Vanderbilt University, and an enthusiastic return to the Nashville art community. Greg holds two Master of Fine Arts Degrees, one from Cranbrook Academy of Fine Art, and one from the New York Academy of Art, and has studied at Oxford University in England.
