‘One of the attractive things about being an artist is having the ability to create your own world, and then inviting people to visit it. The pictures I make explore ways to use the figure as a vehicle for narrative. I am specifically interested in how identity is expressed via the body; physical appearance and the ways it can be altered; the skin and its potential to be the stem point for transformation. I’m compelled to construct discrete personalities and formulate individual stories for the characters in my prints, paintings, poppets and drawings. It is a most amusing part of my art practice. The creative process, for me, is very much about synthesis of the real and imagined – fusing an eclectic mix of reference material with observations and thoughts to invent something otherworldly and absurd, that is also genuine.’ Rona Green, 2018
Exhibition current until Sunday 22 April 2018
