Gregory Officer (pseud. Arthur Artos)

American-Dutch abstractionist painter (1947)


Lives and works in Zwolle, The Netherlands



Greg Officer studied psychology and philosophy of religion/theology in both America and the Netherlands.  Sinds 2006 he has devoted himself fulltime to painting.  "For me, painting is mainly a philosophical undertaking:  It's about how we (choose to) see the geometry of form and make sense of it."
