Gregory Euclide: Laid Down and Wiped Away

Gregory Euclide, artist and teacher, creates temporary paintings during his twenty-five minute lunch breaks. They’re beautiful but the message he imparts through his works are more important. Euclide began creating temporary paintings on whiteboard as a demonstration to his students of the impermanence of nature. He relates this concept to societyʼs impact on the natural world by stating, “When people get to know nature and spend time in it, they start to realize how their actions affect it.”

Euclide’s project is called “Laid Down and Wiped Away” and he mainly uses Japanese Sumi ink, erasers and paper towels.
