The Gregory Nangle aesthetic explores what happens when geometry is interjected into nature. His work juxtaposes Minimalist geometry with forms or essences that come from natural materials frequently treated or combined with metal or glass.

For example, what happens when a cube invades the natural realm of tree leaves? One possibility is “Forrest”, a bronzed leaf cube chair, in which the cube geometry is partially defined by the negative space and completed by the way bronzed leaves inhabit the rest of the cube.

In “Slab Side Table,” Nangle uses a perfectly sliced rectilinear crystal slab and supports it with an off-kilter combination of bronze pieces highly suggestive of large scale pencil tips. The natural beauty of the crystalline formations invites the viewer into a deeper contemplation of how crystal is naturally formed. The slab rests on the imposed geometry of the bronze base, which nonetheless has its own beauty through imposed shape and color.

The recurring natural elements in Nangle’s work are rocks, leaves and wood. These materials are combined and sometimes fabricated with metal and glass from Nangle’s own on-site foundry and glass blowing studio. Nangle’s vision and practice is best described as Embellished Minimalism, which is about the aesthetic tension between stark geometry on one hand and natural forms on the other. Either one or both can become embellished by the artist’s craft intervention to underscore the artist’s intention.
