Gregory A McCullough is based in the Great Lakes watershed of Canada. McCullough's art bridges the digital and classical visual art divides. Seeking gems "found in translation", his art re-embodies the visual vocabulary of one medium within another. He seeks to express art as a way of knowing (embodying the visual vocabulary we see the world through) which can then reveal our paradigms of knowing, even those subsumed from technologies usage.
Trained classically in Industrial Design and Fine Arts (Humber and Concordia University) he juxtaposes this with his training in Digital Animation (Icarus) and decades of creating 3D synthetic environments for Air Traffic Controller and Pilot training simulators (Adacel and CAE). His art celebrates a retelling of the - "this is how we know of the world now."


I see arts role as elucidating and illuminating our current paradigms of being, so to open them up to a self critique. For though technology may have convinced us humanity is a ‘tool maker’ , I firmly hold that we are exceptional ‘paradigm jumpers’. That what makes us most unique is what underlies our comedy; sports; literature; music; play; cinema; games; academia; scientific breakthroughs; et al. This is our innate ability to temporarily construe other paradigms of being, and then bring their lessons back to this common reality. This found in translation is what my art seeks to embody, regardless of it’s subject matter, -the disparate paradigms of being.
