With a bit of palimpsest and some hints from the New York and San Francisco abstract expressionists, Green puts the pedal to the canvas in such stunning works as “Pueblo Sunset” with its surreptitious serpentine linear motif.
Though not exactly the curvilinear arabesque of art nouveau followers like Henri Matisse, Green’s writhing gestural lines effortlessly describe Native American pottery designs, architecture and weaving patterns.
The predominantly red and smooth-to-the-touch painting is just a part of his abstract repertoire that continues to evolve from his work shown in July 2014 at the Freestyle Gallery. Green was an award-winning advertising artist, filmmaker and designer.
His be-bop-a-lula multilayered, sanded and re-sanded canvases offer an affirmation in support of his creative shift with a nod to rockabilly star Gene Vincent.
