Welcome to Montville Art Gallery

Greg Adams
Greg Adams was born in Melbourne in 1949. His first visit to Queensland as an impressionable lad of thirteen had such an impact on him that he still draws on these early memories when creating his paintings. The timber houses on stilts were exotic and fascinating to him. The warmth of the seas, the blue of the sky and the sweet smell of ripe pineapples are vivid memories.Greg attended the National Gallery Art School between 1967 and 1969. In the early seventies, he travelled and painted in England and Europe before moving to Queensland for the first time in 1974. Gregs family bought an old house on the point along from Kings Beach, Caloundra. The old house had red painted floorboards and a veranda from where he could watch the sun setting behind the Glasshouse Mountains and the moon over the sea. The interior of this house features in many of Gregs paintings. The red floorboards are prominent and there is always an open window with the view across the bay. Gradually Greg moved outside and painted exterior views of the house, with the Bay and the Glasshouse Mountains.Greg has travelled extensively, including touring through Europe in 1977, taking the overland route through India and the Middle East.For eighteen months, he lived in a rainforest valley near Port Douglas where the Poincianas erupt into brilliant orange/red blooms each spring. An indelible image of this lush, tropical landscape is firmly etched into Gregs psyche. Balconies and verandas where so much of his time was spent, a rug, a cane chair and various cups and bowls which travelled with him, are other recurring images in Gregs paintings.The element of naivety in Gregs work is deliberate. He paints entirely from memory. His preferred medium is acrylic on canvas and he refers to his style as "formalised realism".Greg Adams paintings are included in collections throughout Australia, the United Kingdom and Europe.
