Rona Green: Just hanging around

6 Feb 2021 - 16 Feb 2021

Using anthropomorphism and body decorations, Rona Green’s hand coloured linocut prints present an array of impossible yet believable human-animal hybrid subculture characters.

Just hanging around is an exhibition of fanciful figurative printmaking that explores the nature of individuality.

Rona Green is interested in how identity is relayed via the body - physical appearance and the ways it can be altered, and the potential for skin to be the stem point for transformation.

The artist utilises the devices of anthropomorphism and body decoration to invent images of impossible yet somewhat believable human-animal hybrid creatures. These characters are misfits and loners, and champions of self-expression.

Use of tattoo as a motif in Green’s work is fired by its capacity to tell a story – it can convey information about origin, affiliation, status and proclivities. As a form of communication tattooing has the ability to transcend language barriers, which makes it an exciting tool for transmitting ideas.

A fancier of Egyptian art, science fiction, cartoons and comics, monster movies, secret societies and subcultures, Green endeavours to imbue her work with elements of these things which she finds fascinating.

Green is renowned for her strikingly distinctive hand coloured linocut prints that conjure up a fantastical world full of peculiar persons, and she invites you to come mingle within the menagerie.

Rona Green is represented by Australian Galleries, Melbourne and Sydney.
