 Working primarily in oil paint and gouache, Gregor creates psychological portraits of young girls caught within the awkward tension between girlhood and womanhood, innocence and sexuality. Her compositions are often warm and inviting, yet loom with a sense of existential dread. The surroundings that the figures are confined to hint at rural Midwestern landscapes and outdated interiors. There is a sense of frustration and boredom behind the girl’s often heavy eyes.
