before about painter/sculptor Gregory Euclide who casts nature for his magnificent landscape dioramas and blends moss, Blackberry Lily seeds, hair, and snow into his pigments for paintings that seem to grow off the canvas. I was thrilled to see that indie folk band Bon Iver
commissioned Euclide to create the cover art for their lovely and majestic new eponymous album and single. Now, Euclide and David B. Smith Gallery
