For the past 25 years, Nuala Gregory has maintained a profile as an exhibiting artist in the mediums of painting, printmaking and drawing.
Acting Dean of the National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries, The University of Auckland
Her work has been shown throughout Europe, the USA, New Zealand, Mexico and Japan. In recent exhibitions, she has sought a 'return' to the possibilities of colour, surface, collage and drawing in order to renew the force of the material and the aesthetic against predominantly discursive or conceptual approaches.
Her work is not simply a celebration of painting but an extended play upon its means, and an enquiry into its ongoing possibilities. Gregory is also known for her scholarly writings on contemporary art and on art education, including creativity, interdisciplinarity and studio pedagogy.
A recipient of numerous arts awards and bursaries, she has contributed widely to the visual arts environment through curation, artistic collaborations, international conferences, and the enhancement of arts programmes, teaching and infrastructure at tertiary and community levels.
