Greg Metcalf

Greg Metcalf

Greg Metcalf's PhD from the University of Maryland focused on the way that artist creations exist in the imagination of a culture and his MFA from Bowling Green University dealt with abstraction and photrealism through drawing and watercolor painting. He is the author of The DVD Novel: How the Way We Watch Television Changed the Television We Watch published by Praeger Press in 2012 and is currently working on Mary Cassatt: The View from the Loge and the Lap, a monograph focused on the subversive construction of the artist’s paintings and prints. Metcalf's essays published in collections, journals, and exhibition catalogs include such subjects as Walt Disney's animated histories, Bob Dylan's use of cover recordings, Andy Warhol's interpretations of commodities as celebrities, and the relationships of Ivan Albright and serial killer fiction, along with various explorations of popular film. Metcalf’s Congolese-inspired ritual sculpture for the present age have been exhibited in Europe, Asia, Africa and the US and are collected worldwide. He discusses his sculpture in this video from the Phillips Gallery in Washington, DC:
