Jason Greig

Jason Greig graduated from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts in 1985 with Honours in Engraving. He studied printmaking under Barry Cleavin and went on to teach the next generation at both Otago and Canterbury. Primarily a printmaker, Greig exhibits his lithographs, monoprints, drawings, paintings and etchings, both here and internationally. His work is held in numerous private and public collections including the National Art Gallery in Wellington, the Hocken Library in Dunedin, the Christchurch Art Gallery, and the Aigantighe Art Gallery in Timaru. His work has been described as ‘grim’ and ‘highly imaginative’ and the artist himself has been described as ‘a technical virtuoso’. Jason Greig evokes a sense of the occult and the mysterious – of something hidden just beyond our understanding.
