Gregory spends a lot of time inside staring at pictures of outside. He uses this conflict, the viewing of outside in, as a vehicle to create reliefs using pictures of nature.

He also uses objects like paint cans to create a portal through which it appears a landscape is spilling out of. Is this a comedy about man polluting nature and then trying to replicate it to make ourselves feel better? Or is it a commentary about how paint and graphic tools can fabricate an ideal of what nature is supposed to be? You decide.
