Artist Statement

Gregory Sobieraj constructs assemblages that are often manifestations of his long-rooted cross fixations. Each piece evolves without an assigned meaning and becomes an amalgamation of his feelings at completion. It represents a glimpse at the nuances and complexities of emotions of atypical gay men who are often in conflict with themselves and their worlds.
