William's early career focused mainly on photography, initially working as a sports photographer and capturing events from the NFL to the Tour de France for a multitude of publications. After a few years in the journalism industry, Greiner returned to college and found inspiration in fine art photography. In his interview with Michael Warner from Two Way Lens, Greiner gives insight into his enlightenment to photography as an elevated artistic medium. "While there, I befriended two kids from Memphis, TN. One of these kids one day shows up in my dorm room with a copy of William Eggleston's Guide book. It turns out her dad was one of Bill's benefactors, helping to fund his career. I looked at this book and although I could not completely grasp its complexity or originality, I realized photography had the potential to be very personal and it did not have to function as journalism or "news". On Spring break, we traveled to Memphis and I had a chance to spend time with Eggleston. This encounter was like a fork in the road and I pretty much abandoned photography as journalism. I know this is a long answer but its my answer! Photography for me now is an obsession, it is how I look at and react to the world." Read the full article here.

From that time, William Greiner's career has seen many successes, including the acquisition of his collection The Reposed by The Museum of Modern Art (New York), many print publications of photographic series, and the addition of his images into the J. Paul Getty Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

 

While a diverse exploration of mediums has always been a cornerstone of William's career, his recent works explore collage, paint, and printmaking. A recent transplant from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Fort Worth, William Greiner's work on display at Artspace111 expresses a sense of self and nostalgia through the places we inhabit. The bright colors in both his prints and paintings are a joyous expression concerning the connection between eras, communities, and their populations. Visit Artspace111 before June 18th to see work from William Greiner's latest series.

Mud & Honey: The Art of Janet Chaffee

By Kevin Bouchard There is a kind of art, particular to painting that is anchored in raw Shamanistic interactions with material; relying on mineral rather than color, on weight rather than illusion. The arrangement of these materials reveals artistic intention, while the specific gravity of each pigment, each element, resonates independently. Janet Chaffee makes this… Continue Reading
