Greg Jarmaine spent more than forty years as a professional artist. He had a distinctive style that art lovers Australia-wide adore and collect. His understanding of perspective, colour and light, along with his handling of oil, acrylic and watercolour paints came naturally, and was a regular part of his life. Since his first solo exhibition in 1980 his artwork has been in popular demand throughout Australia as well as in the UK and America. He hosted over 35 solo exhibitions throughout his career.
Greg’s subject matter ranged widely, covering a full spectrum from coastal beaches to country homesteads, local street scenes and exotic international boulevards. A hallmark of almost every artwork is Greg’s custom of leaving out certain modern structures, transporting the landscape back in time to create nostalgic views which hark back to fond memories. Predominantly working with oil and acrylic paints Jarmaine developed a modern impressionistic style, creating detailed paintings with swift brush strokes.
KAB Gallery worked closely with Greg Jarmaine for many years to bring his wonderful works to the market. Following his sad passing in 2021 we continue to work closely with his family, to catalogue and make available a special collection of works Greg painted and stored throughout his career.
“His abilities are extroadinary, wheather it is at the beach at Terrigal, or on the glistening wet pavements of Paris on a cold winters day, Greg is truely a creative master”
