Nathan Green
Happy Birthday Moon

May 8 – June 17, 2009

Please join us Friday, May 8th from 8-10 PM as Art Palace presents Happy Birthday Moon, a solo exhibition featuring new paintings, sculptures, and drawings by Nathan Green. Nathan Green’s work is best described as a search for the ecstatic. His vibrant paintings depict radiant visions of unrealistic and impossible situations. Mundane moments are transformed into fantastical spectacles with an unusual simultaneity of sarcasm, joy, naivety, and cynicism; all with the aims of an elevation and mystification of everyday life.
