Greg Edmonson (born 1960) grew up in Calgary, Alberta. He received his Masters Degree in fine arts from the University of Alberta in Edmonton in 1985. Later he travelled to Europe, and lived in Italy, where he studied the masters of the Renaissance.
Memoryscapes, his most recent series of paintings, have evolved from memories of landscapes, some of which also had their origins in dreams. An important aspect of these works was to develop the paintings so as to catch the transient and dynamic light of day while adding a luminosity.
His paintings are seen today in many prominent collections including those of Microsoft, the Toronto Dominion Bank, the Canada Council Art Bank, the Department of External Affairs (Canada), the Alberta Art Gallery, the Alberta Art Foundation, the Glenbow Museum, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the University of Lethbridge, and the Albright Museum. His paintings have been exhibited at the University of Waterloo, the Medicine Hat Museum and Art Gallery, the Edmonton Art Gallery, the Nickle Arts Museum, the Glenbow Museum, the Walter Phillips Gallery, Neutral Ground and various art fairs including the S.I.A.C. Art Fair in Rome, Italy.
