Opening Reception: Friday, February 21, 2014, 6-8pm
Exhibition runs through March 29, 2014.
In his fifth solo presentation with Art Palace, Nathan Green further explores the formal and structural qualities of abstract painting. By colliding tropes of modern abstraction with traditional crafting techniques and common construction materials, Green’s work playfully re-examines the act and history of painting. The works in Building Pictures collapse painting, sculpture, and installation into singular hybrid forms that pay homage to rich histories, while aiming to add to the language of abstraction and forge a new painterly vocabulary.
Most recently, Nathan Green exhibited work in the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston (Outside the Lines). In 2012, he completed the Artist in Residency program at Central Trak (Dallas, TX,) and has shown work at the Austin Museum of Art, Subliminal Projects (Los Angeles), and LVL3 (Chicago). As a founding member of Okay Mountain collective, Green has exhibited at Freight & Volume (New York, NY), Prospect 1.5 (New Orleans, LA), University of Houston’s Blaffer Museum and DeCordova Sculpture Park (Lincoln, MA). Green lives and works in Dallas, Texas and is Assistant Curator of Education at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
