Park Projects is pleased to present the work of Amy Green, exhibiting works on canvas and painting installations. Green pushes the boundaries of painting to include architectural elements from the installation site and the artist's studio as part of the artwork. The paintings interact with the wall, the floor, the lights and the space.

Green creates work that extends and questions the limits of painting where the definitions of beginning and end become blurred. The pieces themselves redefine the confines of object-ness, allowing elements that are usually seen as side notes or auxiliary objects to become the painting. They engage the viewer in an interaction with the relationship of paint and color. Color reaches out onto the space of the floor and the wall, making it a physical experience.   Paintings include the play with materials such as plastic film, paint pours, and polymer resin. The plastic film creates a three dimensional quality that enables one to see the colors pushing out and separating from the painting support.

In The Yellow Ladder, Green presents a wall installation with an additional painted canvas section, lights, and leaning construction materials. Partly painted on the wall and onto the canvas the result is a utilitarian object that is portrayed in a way that can't be accessed. Installation objects act as props on a set. Viewers engage with a fictional space, non-narrative, a site for painting construction.

Amy Green, a Los Angeles artist, received her BFA in painting at the University of Tennessee and earned her MFA at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in 1997.
