Biography

[New York, NY ::: b. 1960 - Detroit, MI]

Elliott Green was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1960 and has been making paintings in New York since 1981.

After spending a year in Rome in 2012, his work developed a new sense of space and landscape, characterized by panoramic, far-reaching vistas, and geophysical features like mountains, reservoirs and skies that seem to melt impossibly into pure gesture. In his recent work, the conventions of landscape are upended to produce a visual experience of equal parts gestural energy, emotion, memory, and metaphor.
