Two very different creative approaches are evident in David Green‘s current exhibition. Large, incredibly intricate, dip-pen and ink drawings, that take months to complete, are juxtaposed alongside small, gestural and collaged evocations. “When I finish a big drawing, I need to clear my head, so I’ll spend a period of time just having fun,” Green remarks. “My work has always fluctuated between fine line and broad brushstrokes; between drawing, drawing/embroideries and painting,” he furthers. Green relays that this is in all probability a consequence of working as a freelance textile designer in his early days. A constant changing of styles was required to meet the various companies’ niche markets. The exhibition’s twofold title, Weathervanes and A Fish Called Myrtle, cryptically acknowledges the dichotomy. Stylistically, the large and small works display a distinct variance, but both derive inspiration from childhood recollections.
Opening event: 3-5pm Saturday October 16
