Sustainable Painting

Chakra 3 & 4 Wave by Greg Patch

Chakra 3 & 4 Wave by Greg Patch

Knowing that:
– most paintings/paints are composed of toxic chemicals,
petro-oils, plastics and heavy metals along with
preservatives and fungicides like formaldehyde
– most paintings/paints also produce off gases that
increase the toxicity of the environment in which they are
manufactured and displayed.
– present labeling of art materials as non-toxic is solely regulated
by self interested fine art paint industry representatives.

Please take a few moments to visit my website gallery The medium I use is beeswax (a sustainable) and pigments that are toxicologically harmless – food container safe by European and US standards. The papers I am using are sustainably harvested plant based materials or recycled cotton pulp.

More in depth writing on toxins in the visual arts can be found on my website at
In assuring to create a healthy environment the medium I work in is manufactured using a natural, food container safe medium of beeswax and pigments carefully selected for their non toxic characteristics.

“My paintings move with the forces of nature – the streams, mountains, astrology, technology, thoughts, actions, energy, self, lunch – and culminate in the realization that everything is the wave. “I believe that nature calls to each of us to step out of ourselves and into it, to identify and revel within it, amid the waves. Doing this can transform our awareness into an energy greater than our own understanding.”

Thanks for considering my invitation to visit my website gallery: and for choosing to use your energies to create healthy environments.

Please forward this to friends and/or associates that may be interested.
