Studio Gregory Hurcomb’s interests collide along the intersections of the visual arts (including but not limited to installation, sculpture, photography, film, and painting), architecture, and design. We are inspired and motivated to explore the hybrid processes that are located within the physical and perceptual transformation of space by the mediums of air, light, sound, and structure, all amalgamated into new forms, and potential energies.
Gregory Hurcomb has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the International Center of Photography in New York City, USA, and in Berlin, Germany and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Currently he is an Adjunct Professor II in the Architecture Division at the California College of the Arts and will be teaching courses in the MArch & BArch programs within the Architecture Department, as well as in the BFA program in the Interior Design Department.

In addition, he has been a guest critic on fine art, design, and architecture reviews at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, California College of the Arts, Academy of Art University, Woodbury University, and the University of Pennsylvania.
